Pretend it's June 30.
Sasha Blaze
I'll go back and catch up on all comments once I have the last of the Japan pictures posted--but I want to get those pinned down before I start losing track of what happened when.

Saturday at Kamakura in the summer = hot, wet, and crowded. (However, roasted ginkgo nuts as sold from stalls on the way to the temple = yummy.)

Before I get to the pictures of Kamakura, though, I think I remember a promise of food . . .

Food of the inedible variety, in a restaurant window in Harajuku:

Various people's lunches in Kamakura:

Approaching the shrine of Hachiman-gu:

Young women enjoying a traditional Japanese summer day:

All these people were registered at the shrine, and had come for a special blessing. The tourists were chivvied away in short order.

See the shrine maidens and priests under the white tent?

And then it started to pour . . .

But it cleared up for a few minutes while we were visiting the Daibutsu. I especially liked him from this angle:

I had promised a friend of mine here that I would climb up and look through the Daibutsu's eyes, but the line was so long that I didn't make it (our group was hurrying to get back to Musashisakai before the train line shut down for construction). Yet another reason why I absolutely have to go back, ne?

oh lookit!! and they have PARASOLS!! **GLEE**

man now i'm all hungry. and i want noodles.

What beautiful presentations for the food ... lovely colourful bowls and arfully arranged fare. I can almost smell it!

The rain pictures are lovely ... especially the one with the iris.

But what I'm really wondering is whether those elegant, traditional ladies actually break a sweat. That clothing can't be conducive to hot weather!

It all looks yummy. I love all the shrine pics. ^_^

Oh the food looks really yummy ^-^

More WONDERFUL photo glimpses of Japan. I LOVE ALL of these images . . . so graphic and striking!!!! ^_____________^

Heh, remind me not to look at pictures of yummy Japanese food when I'm hungry!! XD
