Honor Stand

Honor stands are all over, especially in the more rural areas. Farmers set up a little roadside stand and ask that you leave yen in return. I think I've posted them before, but this was the first time I had seen the above set up. You drop your yen for the oranges into that pipe and it goes directly into the house.
Speaking of farmers... This was my bounty from my favorite Farmer's Market this weekend. With the exception of the asparagus, this is what my basket looked like all throughout the winter.

They're already flying their koinobori well ahead of Children's Day on May 5th.

I didn't know it was ok to fly the koi ahead of time. That's good to know because I'm always forgetting to put mine up.
