Kristen & I went to Kamakura where they have the Daibutsu, the second largest statue of Buddha.:
We went to see several old temples including the Engaku-Ji Temple there we saw students learning archery:
and an old bell which was given to Japan in 1301:
At the Kencho-Ji Temple, there was an even older bell. This one was made in 1255:
There there were also many old statues:
And a row of trees that were planted 700 years ago:
There were many pretty flowers all around.
