Photographer's Note

Kamakura's most famous attraction, the Daibutsu. It is a bronze statue weathered over the years, and is the second largest Buddha statue in Japan. The statue was cast in 1252 and originally located inside a large temple hall. However, the temple buildings were washed away by a tsunami tidal wave in the end of the 15th century, and since then the Buddha stands in the open air.

Feedback welcome!

Edit: Camera was pointed upwards so that people milling about were cut out of the photo. December was a wonderful time to visit Japan as there were few tourists!
