Tokyo Holiday - Day 5

We went by train to Kamakura and it took just over an hour from Tokyo. The busy pace from the capital transformed into a quiet and tranquil ambiance in this small town. It was raining whole day and wet everywhere. This town is most famous for its Big Buddha which is the 2nd tallest in Japan. 



We headed to the hills where there is a beautiful temple of the 11-Headed Guan Yin of the Hasederia Temple. It overlooks the panoramic ocean view.




At night, we visited the bustling Shinjuku area where it comes to life after sunset. It has a very popular Red Lights area with lots of pimps pestering the males.


When I get back home, I will blog one by one again with many photos. Thanks for reading my preview, sent from my mobile phone.

  4. i also went to Shinjuku at night, but for just a brief stay, during my Tokyo trip two years ago.. we went to Kabukicho, and i guess Anay also went there too?? hehehe.. :p

    didn't do much but just to feel the hustle bustle of this district.. oh, i remember i bought some toiletries from a big pharmacy there, that were rather cheap compared to prices in KL..

  5. Luckily this post is just a preview. I thought you are so "brave" to blog about Buddhist temples and Kabukicho in the same post. Doesn't seem like your usual way of doing things hahaha!

  10. Kamakura sounds like a tranquil place to visit. I thought Roppongi is like that, not Shinjuku.

  11. Blogging from phone? I thought you brought your laptop along, but I guess it's a best way to record your travelogue, because things and feeling might changed when you're travelling and blogging after that.
