Given how tired she got in the previous days, Nadia decides to take a break and rest in the morning during which Rob and I will instead go to visit the nice Kamakura, another famous town of the shogunate, where one of the biggest Buddha statues in the World is located.
The little town is more than an hour and two train changes away from Tokyo, but the beauty, serenity and harmony of its constructions is worth the hassle.
Apart from the usual temples, this town has some peculiarities that make the sight even more interesting and unique.
I'm talking about the caves near the main temple, dug in the rock, dark and wet, that following a forced path made of low and narrow tunnels where only some torches and candles provide a weak light, lead the visitor through a tradition of arcane and magic rites.
Or about the cemetery of never born children, represented by many little statues that often wear some clothes or are covered to be protected from the erosion, just like little human beings.
After the visit to Kamakura and to its big and magnificent Buddha, we go back to Tokyo, stopping in Akihabara, kingdom of otakus and technology.
Obviously, in a small uptown like the ancient Edo, where only 20 million people live it's normal to meet people from my forum in a random shop XD.
This is something that will happen again and again in the following days.... and we have pictures to witness it!!!XD
