Hi I’m Nobu, I like traveling overseas and in Japan, visited 26 countries!

For the people who are interested in and planning trip to Japan ,
I show you hidden local information which you have never seen and heard of through books and ordinary site!
You will find unexpected fun through my articles!
We went to Meigetsuin Temple in Kamakura.
It is a temple of the Rinzai sect, founded in 1160.
3,000 hydrangeas bloom on the temple grounds this day!
Its beautiful blue color is called “Myogetsuin Blue” and is very famous.
The Great Buddha of Kamakura
This is the Great Buddha of Kotokuin temple.
This bronze statue stands about 13 m tall and is the second largest Buddha statue in Japan after Nara one.
The Daibutsuden building was swept away by the great tsunami of 1498, but the Great Buddha survived.
The Pacific Ocean
Kamakura is a city facing the sea, and you can reach the Pacific Ocean within a short walk.
We enjoyed the beach for a while and enjoyed the open and relaxed atmosphere.
Hokokuji Temple, a temple of bamboo forest
Next, we went to Hokokuji Temple, which is famous for its bamboo forest.
It is not as big as Kyoto’s bamboo grove, but you can enjoy a quiet moment inside while drinking Japanese tea.
Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine
The last stop was Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, the most popular shrine of Kamakura.
Lotus leaves are in full bloom and there are many carp in the pond.
On the way back to Kamakura Station, we walked along the terraced path lined with cherry blossom trees.
How was it?
Shall we go together next chance?
You can enjoy the traditional Japan just 1 hour from Tokyo!
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!
