Kamakura day trip Sep 2013

kamakura japan september japanese train
WHOAH~ 7 months had passed since I left Japan but I still have some blog articles to clear before my next adventure (if my book sells well?)! This is about my trip to Kamakura on 19th Sep 2013. Kamakura is approximately an hour train ride from Tokyo and is a popular tourist destination for short get-aways. It's also called Little Kyoto for the numerous number of temples and shrines.

When one person touches, everyone touches, including me of course.

Break time outside the temple. Tried sweet potato that was said to be the best-selling flavour in Kamakura, but I think soft cream at Kawagoe tasted better (PS. I just realised that I didn't blog about Kawagoe Festival at all!)

Another temple nearby, needed to go to the ladies so I paid for the entrance fee to check out the temple too.

Hmm... how do people keep their garbage??? Their bags must smell amazing...

I didn't stay too long at Kamakura because I wasn't a great fan of temples. Moreover, I had already been to Kyoto and seen enough, so I headed to Enoshima, a small island nearby, to see cliffs and caves instead. However it was closed due to typhoon. This will be my next post!

    1. Haha yes, good old times~~~ Difficult now unless I have loads of cash lol XD

      Japanese houses are so small and they emphasise on privacy.
      So it is difficult to ask my friends for a free stay at their house/apt.

    1. Thanks ewww! My publisher just suggested to me to take out some strips that includes US, because there's not a lot... so we can use those for book 2 when there are more materials about US. I sure want to visit there again! It has been 6 years since I left~
