On our first free day, we did a day trip to Kamakura, and then stopped at Yokohama for dinner.
Here are the two ladies I traveled with at the Big Buddha statue in Kamakura at the Kotokuin Temple. This statue was constructed in 1252. It was fun to walk around and look at the various gardens and buildings.
I love these cute laterns...they come in all shapes and sizes.
I enjoy walking around the temple areas...sometimes I find the smaller outbuildings to be more interesting than the main structure...
Walking back to the train, we saw this neat shop/house with a cool blue roof!
This cat store made us all very happy...we stimulated the economy in there!
We stopped at Yokohama for dinner. Their Chinatown is known for steamed buns...we ate several types and they were divine!
