Japan Trip 2000
 

Kamakura
 

Daibutsu is a huge 93 ton, 37 1/2' high bronze statue of the budda  cast in the thirteenth century,similar to the daibutsu in Nara it was housed in a temple-this was swept destroyed about a Century later by a tidal wave,
leaving the Budda in the open air.

I took some black and white Photographs of the Daibutsu which I think do more justice
than colour-hope to put those on soon.

Hachimangu
This is the primary temple in Kamakura.We visted in the  sichi-go-san season so it was rather
busy.
