Kamakura is a chill town
so last friday i went to kamakura, an hour south of tokyo. it used to be the capital of japan way back in the day… it is a really chill beach town steeped in history with tons of temples.
this statue is probably the most epic thing ive seen in japan, it is the ofuna kannon, a statue and icon for world peace
you have to climb a giant hill to get up to it
this is what it basically looks like from the train, which adds to the sheer epicness of it.
there were alot of surfers out, even though there was only like a barely 1 foot swell
lush and green!
sweet cave. i dedicated a little statue to all my friends and family. as a side note, there is this other temple in kanagawa, which is really sweet. its called tamagawa daishi. basically, you go down into this cave tunnel and its pitch black, you follow it, tracing your hand along the wall and you come into a few lighted sections with shrines and stuff, and there are these bells going off, its really trippy and epic. anyways…
most. adorable. buddha ever.
second biggest buddha in japan
why is this sign in old english?
school kids backpacks are awesome
it would be sweet to rent a beach house in this town
