June 26th 2016. Today I was lucky enough to travel to Kamakura with a Professor Mari Nakamura and two of her seminar students today. It has been by far one of the more fun trips I’ve experienced in Japan and I got to experience a Jinrickshaw which was one of the highlights from the trip. Professor Nakamura and two girls name Saori and Ayako took me around Kamakura area for not only shopping and good eats but also showed me such a breath taking view at Hasedera temple. I love a good view and this view was spectacular! I was also able to see and actually go inside the Great Buddha while we were visiting as well. Truly remarkable and beautiful for both of the places we visited. These amazing people showed me amazing cultural aspects as well were wonderful company and it truly was a journey to remember. I’ve not only had a great time but I’ve also made great friends/relations with these ladies. I hope one day they can come to California so that I can return the favor and show them around the beautiful west coast of California and the treasures that it hides.
