(I had this blog post in my draft since July 2, 2013. I’ve decided to just post this up despite the lack of text. A picture speaks a thousand words, I guess.)
Act I: Reaching town
The trip to Kamakura in 2012 was totally impromptu. I was planning to head to Yokohama with my N’EX and Suica package but changed my mind when I saw that the ticket covers Kamakura.
Despite being a city person, I love old towns more than cities. The trip to Kamakura from the airport was quite long. I fell asleep on the train.
The sky was cloudy when I reached. It took me a while to find an empty locker to store my luggage.
Act II Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gū
Act III Before, during, after the rain
It was pouring when I left the shrine. I stood at the corner of a street to wait for the rain to stop a little. It didn’t stop that much.

Hmm.. This seriousLy made me reconsider my whoLe Tokyo itinerary next month..
You’re going to Tokyo? That’s so exciting. :3 I recommend going to Kamakura if you’re arriving early–visit a bit before returning to Tokyo for hotel check in.
UnfortunateLy my point if entry is Osaka, so I think I wouLdn’t be abLe to use the NEX card Like you recommend.. I’LL see what I can do ^^
Looks nice. I’ll have to do a side-trip to Kamakura one of these days.
Yay! It’s a small enough town for a quarter of a day.
