Kamakura trip~!  
Kamakura ~ The semi famous japanese tourist area where you can wash your money to earn good luck! =^___^=

I've wanted to go to Kamakura for a long time, and thanks to an invitation from some awesome japanese friends, my friends and I were off for one of the more wonderful days that I've had in a LONG time! It was a LOT of fun, and I feel that we not only bonded together, but we made some really good friends! It was a relaxing and fun day for all of us, I think~!!

Here are a smattering of pictures from the trip! ^^ Sorry for the lack of comments, but I'm just dead tired from a great day!!

Aren't they beautiful!!!!!!

Budda's feet were this big!! (And it's BIG!!)

Small Buddha ^^

This is the view of the ocean, from the side of the city. ^^ It's so beautiful! This was a little while before the earthquake, though I don't think that there's been a lot of change. ^^ I hope not at least!!

Beautiful altar set up in a cave. ^^

I LOVE this picture!!

This is inside of the GIANT buddha statue! EMPTY!!! As Eda said, he's achieved the greatest enlightenment, being empty of all thought, because he doesn't have a brain!! (It sounded better when she said it! I'm sorry, I'm REALLY tired! ^^;;)

Buddha's giant sandals to go on his my feet!

Buddha is a sexy baby!! ♥

This is where you wash your money to get good fortune! ^^

And you pass your dollar bills through the incense. ^^

These machines..... dispense traditional fortunes (I got good luck!). X_x........................................................ The japanese will really put anything in vending machines besides candy..

And... engrish! XDXD

Go to Kyoto and Nara, that's where all the old famous cluster of temples are. Oh yeah, fun. ^_^

If I go over there, I'll drag you around there when I'm in town XD

I need to go there. That is on my list of things to do next time I am there.

Next you need to check our Hakone.
It makes for a good relaxing week-end.
