Kamakura – Part 1

giant buddha kamakura daibutsu

I recently visited Kamakura for the second time in my life and first time in over 21 years. The Daibutsu (大仏) hadn’t changed, unlike Shinjuku, but it was great to be in its presence again. Photographs can’t impress the feeling that comes from actually standing at the base of this giant.

    I also visited Kamakura again a few weeks ago for the second time in my life. 🙂
    I originally planned to visit an archery festival there this time, but it turned out that I was misinformed about the date of the festival, which turned out to be just a few days after my departure from Japan.
    It was still nice to be there again, as the city has a nice flair and a lot of interesting sights, shrines and temples.

    I’m hoping to go back late in November when the fall colors (紅葉) are going crazy.
