Kamakura Part 2: The Great Buddha

The next stop on our Kamakura trip was the Great Buddha. And it is GREAT - Great, big, and green. 

It was a weird day, alternately sunny and cloudy. Of course when I snapped these photos, it was very cloudy and gray.

I neat water lilly statue.

We even had the opportunity to go inside the statue. I am very impressed with this 1252 work of art and faith.

Happy Day Trippers.
