Kamakura Daibutsu

Saturday May 05, 2012   

Spent a day out in Kamakura with the main objective of seeing their Daibutsu or “Great Buddha.”

Buddha manjuu sweets!

You can pay a small (like 15 yen) fee to go into the giant Buddha.

Inside :)

    Such a peaceful place to be in. And not crowded at all despite it been a tourist spot. Btw, that ‘cat face’ wallet looks mighty familiar…I think you have it?

    This is a cool place! Malaysia have the same Buddha statue. The only different is they don’t sell this cute stuff from the temple. Did you buy the owl stuff ???
