*鎌倉* Kamakura Day Trip

Today I spent the day in Kamakura with some friends I met at the Keio welcome party (for 留学生ーforeign exchange students). It was beautiful and not too far away, just a 40 minute train ride–I want to retire there! : )

at the temples you can pay for these boards and write your wishes on them--such as health for your family or good grades on an exam
