> Well, what ideas does our past business experience as a kappa that has existed in Gensokyo for tens of years and conducted plenty of business transactions there lend itself to?

>Is there anything up there? Presumably. Is it anything valuable? Maybe...
>Would anyone want to go up there enough to pay for it? Maybe. Could you count on that to continue? No idea...
>Is there anything here they would want up there? ...Who knows. You're not even sure what They would be.
>...What is Scarlet Devil Mansion expecting to do?

> "Well, once we go past the moon, I'm not even sure there's anyone up there to trade with or otherwise benefit from. I suppose offering joyrides is technically possible, but the resources necessary to run them with any regularity may result in them being cost-prohibitive. ...That being said, some souvenirs would certainly be nice if I could find them. Obtaining the social recognition of Doing A Cool Thing would also be nice."

>"I'm certain there is someone up there," she says. "Other Heavenly gods, at the vary least. Hmmm, I am not opposed to the idea, but it is a considerable investment, you must understand. I've only begun to turn around my shrine's fortunes recently, after Him." Her voice darkens slightly, before she continues. "It is not simply enough to soar toward the heavens, there must be opportunities if I am to give my full support."
