Right outside of Yokosuka is Kamakura, this adorable beachside-ish Japanese town that hosts Japan's 2nd largest Buddha statue. This weekend we hoped on the train and went strolling down the streets lined with sweets and souvenir shops swarming with the most international crowd we've seen since Kyoto. It was peaceful and rewarding and as we sat under the Buda feeding Ella we couldn't help but realize how special the moment was. Buddha's and Temples bring a certain peace of mind to anyone of any religion. It's just something about the trees, gardens, gathering of people from all over the world, and ancient stuff that makes you appreciate life to it's fullest.
