Kamakura

Diana Dinh
August 8, 2014
One of the zen gardens leading to the main shrine where a tooth of Buddha is held. Kamakura is famous for its hydrangeas. View at Hasedera first time seeing a shrine under massive construction a tranquil spot away from the crowds The Great Buddha in Kamakura is the second largest in Japan a side view a surprising familiar sight

Kamakura was the last IES Abroad sponsored trip of the semester, and it was a really great trip to end with. I wish I had visited the area sooner! Kamakura is famous for its hydrangeas (which are everywhere) and we were fortunate to have been there during the rainy season– when the flowers are at their best! If you enjoy being in more natural settings, Kamakura is the place for you!
