What to buy: People where selling lacquer boxes, small wooden, hand-painted boxes, just about everywhere near a tourist attraction. Prices differed extremely, and the cheap ones just had a stamp or a picture sticked on them. A thick coat of varnish made it look hand-painted. Neat huh? Who needs the expensive real thing when you can also have such a nice cheap souvenir ánd a story about how you were ripped off to tell to the folks at home?
