Everyone we've met has been unbelievably helpful and kind, even though we are totally ignorant of all but the most basic aspects of this immensely complex and sophisticated culture, and we speak only a few words of Japanese. People help us find our way on the streets, and cheerfully teach us new words in Japanese. This lady spontaneously gave Jane a small gift as she walked past her stall.
