The Daibutsu




Daibutsu (Great Buddha)

We were fortunate to have gone to Kamakura while there were still cherry blossoms on some of the trees. Three days later, we would have been out of luck as there were some pretty sideways rains and winds two days after we visited.
One other cool note - the food halls in the basements of department stores are insanely amazing. But, since you can't take pictures in here - I'm going to link to a blog that got special permission to take photos. This was a truly unique experience and I wandered around in awe at all the amazing food. The blog is awesome, BTW. She also writes a bento blog about good bento recipes, creative ideas for bento boxes, etc - call "just bento":
