Japan: Kamakura DaiButsu

The Kamakura Daibutsu is the world's second tallest bronze Buddha statue and one of the main attractions for the little town, making it a necessary stop in our tour.

I also felt it my duty to sample some of the local craft brew.

At another area we stumbled upon this fox temple.

The Obama-cha soft serve ice cream~
Basically a green tea ice cream cone, except the POTUS happened to have stopped at the shop and tried some during a visit to Japan, hence they've taken to using his name to advertise themselves.

We also stumbled upon a Ghibli store!

How about some open out of a can from a vending machine? Only $3! 

I found one of my people.

This adorable little train is the Enoden, or Enoshima Densha. The train will take you to Enoshima island and offers a lovely view of the coast as you ride along.

Business as usual for these kids.

After a long day of adventure, we stopped at a small Chinese restaurant for dinner before parting ways.

It was a lovely trip!
I highly recommend making the time to visit Kamakura if you ever visit Japan. 
Between the beautiful sights and bountiful culture, there's something for everyone to enjoy!
