Great Buddha at Kamakura

What trip to Japan is complete without a visit to the renown Daibutsu (Great Buddha) at Kamakura. Cast over 750 years ago this serene figure sits in the grounds of the Kotoku-in temple. This was my second visit and it was just as wonderful an experience as my previous visit.


The Daibutsu has withstood typhoons, tidal waves, fire and earthquakes.


We were more casual in our photo taking on this visit.


Though we did take some close up shots of his face


and hands.


A side view from under some trees.


Is she calling the Daibustu?


Beautiful face.


We also took photos with a purple Holga. To see the Holga photos of the Daibutsu click here.
