Saturday of the weekend just gone we decided to take a day trip out to Kamakura to look around and have a bit of lunch. We had a great time exploring and eating, here are some photos.
This bell is a national treasure
Although it wasn't actually the main temple building we found this wooden one far more interesting.
Standing under the cover of the wooden structure
Looking up the stairs to the wooden building - we got the idea for this photo from a postcard on sale in the little stand at the front.
We stumbled upon this nice walkway which led eventually up to a park surrounding by forest.
A very friendly Japanese man saw us taking photos and offered to take one for us, however because it was Paul's SLR he wasn't too sure how to use it and ended up taking a really close photo with the super wide angle lens, making us look quite distorted!
After all the walking we felt we deserved an icy beverage
There is a brewing company in Kamakura that makes some very impressive beer, unfortunately it only seems to be on sale in Kamakura.
