Kamakura was Japan’s capital city from 1192 to 1333. It's a great city to visit for the history, the temples and shrines, the hiking, and the beach!

 

The Great Buddha (Daibutsu).

Hide your tattoos on the beach.

Hase-dera Buddhist temple.

I am hiking to visit more temples and shrines.

Sasuki Inari shinto shrine.

Foxes are thought to be Inari's messengers, resulting in many fox statues across the shrine grounds.

Rice patty backyards.

The Japanese love their vending machines!

Beautiful rock gardens at Hokoku-ji temple.

Time to take the Shinkansen, which is the high speed train. Heading to Takayama.
