Today the group went to the ancient city of Kamakura to see the big Buddha, see the commercialism at shrines and to tour Kamakura. We saw the Buddha, played on the beach and then toured a park on Enoshima island outside of Kamakura. What a beautiful place!!! Too bad that the day was interrupted by a hailstorm and a hard driving thunderstorm. The ocean was crazy rough and their were surfers everywhere! To see Japanese ...
