Cable Car Waiting I believe this is Gokurakubashi Station. You get off a regular train that flowly brought you up the valley and then get on the Cable line (the tilted car shown) to get tup the mountain.

Giant Crab This is a pretty young area to hang out - the streets are lined with fast food shops and there are several covered shopping streets intersecting here. The restaurant with the giant crab is called Kani Doraku Dotonburi Honten . We wound up eating okonomiyaki close to here.

Gate Breaking Down Torri rarely fall to this level of disrepair. I really like the moss growing on top of the posts. The stones on top of the cross bar is a common theme in Japan - often you get a reward (luck, a child etc) if you can throw a rock and have it land on the cross bar. Often there are additional requirements - off hand, stand behind the line, etc.

Knitted Hat On Jizo The saturation on this hat was so extreme I had to under expose by three stops to not loose the detail. Matrix metering doesn't solve every scene.

Stone Lantern With Snow On Top I call this a "Chicken Cordon Bleu" shot - take something cool and put in in the foreground (but not in the center) and then add something else cool and use it to fill the background. If you don't like the chicken, maybe you will like the ham.
