... lag for Lily has her under the weather, but some sprite and a Family Mart stop should help. An impressive parking job near the temple grounds where May and Amy had their shichi-go-san (7-5-3) photos taken. The grounds are gorgeous and include a lily pond with turtles and koi – Lily stetches.

Sadly we were on a modern one but I took a photo of one of the others. We took this out the coast and go off for some exploring. We hiked up to the famous Kamakura Buddha.
