To Kamakura

I went to Kamakura city and Zushi city to find an accommodation.
Kamakura is very traditional town that keeping old style of Japan, you can find so many good part of Japanese culture, specially in some temples and gardens. If I decide to live in these cities, I really want to invite you to here.

Japanese green maple's reeves and red gates makes nice contrast. I like this tree and reaf very much.
