A Sense of Nature at Its Best

I was in Kamakura once more. From Tokyo, you buy a Free Kippu, which literally means "free ticket." The ticket is not free however but discounted. The ticket allows you to take the tram car indefinitely. You can stop at every station and a majestic monastery and temple or shrine will be there.

Kamakura, for those who romanticize the place, is the seat of warriors' culture. This was where the code of the Samurai called the Bushido reached its fruition. On that rainy day, Kamakura was indeed romance and adventure. Not even the squirrels scampering over electric and cable lines could diminish the foreboding that seemed to wash over the landscape of this seaside town.
