Kamakura experience
ANKIN_T, Apr 2023
Enjoyed the tour with experienced and knowledgeable tour Guid Rumi, learned the history of Temples and Shrines. Visited four of them out of 5 because it was tiresome for us walking a lot. The favorite one was Meigetsuin Temple of clear Moon. Great Buddha was also impressive.
