[jules' pics] Downtown Kamakura
Even though Amanawa, the oldest* Shinto** shrine in Kamakura, is located in one of the busiest parts of town, it doesn't get many visitors. Don't know why. Because entry is free?
*8th Century, although of course none of the buildings are that age - I suppose, in UK parlance, one would say that there has probably been a shrine on this site since the 8th Century....
**It looks very Zen to me - just show what I know...
P.S. May be better viewed here on my blog, where (as pointed out by a commenter) the same picture appears to have a relaxing sepia tone rather than the bluish cast apparent on the Empty Blog. An interesting illusion - both copies are actually identical with only grey tones.
