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
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.....................................
And... engrish! XDXD
