Things to buy at the Shrine on Coming-of-Age Day

Daruma for sale. Buy one, make a wish, fill in one eye and then when the wish comes true fill in the other eye. They are taken to the temple on the first visit of the new year to be burned.

Caged balloon animals.

Bagged cotton candy.

Small punch balls filled with water. You don't really punch them, you pat them. You wrap the string around your finger and bounce them under your palm.
