There are two shopping streets that lead up to Kiyomizudera.  We walked up one and walked down the other.  Japanese children wear masks at many of the summer festivals.  This shop had such a wide variety of characters, from Baka Tono, the crazy daimyo from a Japanese comedy TV program, to the Buddha himself - in your choice of silver or gold.
