All is quiet, on New Year's Day...





Well, not so much as this is the day when you go and visit temples and make wishes for the new year. We met up with a high school friend Miki and her husband Yoshio and headed out to Kamakura which is about an hour and a half outside of Tokyo, where it goes along the shoreline of the Pacific Ocean.

Once there we ate at a very nice soba restaurant and then waited in line for the main temple. There's an honor guard at the temple that has some really spiffy uniforms. After that we visited the daibuttsu, the giant bronze Buddha you can actually go inside for a measily 20 yen and then went to another temple nearby where we caught an amazing view and sunset over Kamakura.

Couple of days left in the trip. Little more shopping at Akihabara and then maybe the Tokyo Tower. Hope it's a clear day so I can get a glimpse of Mt. Fuji
