The weather outside was delightful…?
Yes, besides being a wee bit chilly it was far from a white Christmas. There were no plans for Christmas day and although I had been sick for a few days I was up for exploring some temples and sites to finally get out of the house. I had been wanting to go to Kamakura to explore the Daibutsu or better known as ‘The Great Buddha’ that US President Obama visited during his trip to Japan so off I went. It was a wee bit confusing having to hop on and off so many trains to get there but luckily with the little Japanese I know and all the signs being written in English lettering or as they call it here ‘romanji’ I found my way easy enough.
