We didn't have any concrete plan of where exactly or what exactly the spots we wanted to visit in Kamakura. It was just a rough - ""we'll go to Kamakura and if we have time; hopefully to Enoshima" plan.
Paying 680yen for adults and 340yen for child for Kamakura-Enoshima day pass, we get to have unlimited rides in a day on JR line, Enoshima Electric Railway and the Shonan Monorail.
We got on the JR line first and traveled to Kamakura.
Then, got on the Enoshima Electric Railway. But first, must buy postcard... and send them home - to ourselves!
All aboard! Then got off-board again...
Made a stop at Hase to visit the Kamakura Daibutsu (Great Buddha of Kamakura).
Didn't manage to walk all that much. Yeah, we did traveled up to Enoshima station but the weather that day made us rethink about our plan. Ended up just passing through the smallish mall there, got bored and decided to travel up and down in the train instead of walking out and being cold, not to mention miserable. Ah well...
A visit to the Great Buddha and stops at souvenir shop and walking around in the rain, we finally finished our trip by taking the Shonan Monorail to Ofuna, on the suspended SAFEGE monorail, the first of its kind in Japan.
Due to the bad weather, it may be viewed that this excursion of ours was not a success. But hey! We got to travel in three different train lines! That's more than enough for us!
Plus, it's not as if we can't make a return visit here someday. Right?
Next post - the Kamakura Daibutsu. I think.
