You must not pass up Kamakura shopping area ice cream. Lots of flavors, light and fluffy texture, delicious!

The great Buddha, from the outside and inside, was bigger than I had expected!

A good photo shot of my husband and I. A friend joked with me that Buddha had photo bombed us!

Another great weekending out seeing Japan. It’s wonderful to have these sightseeing places at, almost, our doorstep. It’s been a lot of fun sightseeing with our children, mostly being present in places with them I’d never imaged we would.

As an update, we’ve just signed papers for those doorsteps. A step closer to settling for a bit in Japan.
