Travel Blogs from Kamakura
... Kamakura is a very 'touristy' town and it was full of people, mainly school groups, all heading for the Daibutsu, which is situated a mile or so from the station. We had a map but it was just as easy to follow the crowd and find the Kotoku-in Temple where resides the said statue.
