I'm going to go into the Tokyo post in a little more detail, as I don't think I covered it off as well as I should have in the posts I've done already. I took quite a few photos, and I want to put some of them up here.
One of the first places we went was Asakusa. Asakusa's main attraction is Sensoji, a very popular Buddhist temple, built in the 7th century. The temple is approached via the Nakamise, a shopping street that has been providing temple visitors with a variety of traditional, local snacks and tourist souvenirs for centuries. Nakamise is very touristy - lots of stores selling chopsticks, samurai swords and other trinkets.
We spent a couple of hours checking out the gate, the Nakamise and the temple. It's a great look back at what Tokyo was like in the past, and it was a great spot to pick up some souvenirs from Tokyo. Although it was cold and windy, it was a good start to the trip to Tokyo.
On the Saturday, we took the train out to Kamakura in the Kanagawa Prefecture. Kamakura is a bit of a beach town, and is also the location of a number of very famous Buddhist temples. We packed a lot it - a trip to the beach (despite it being winter), a couple of great temples, and a short hike up in the hills, which afforded some great views.
I was still in half marathon training mode, so I had to do a long run on the Sunday morning. I did a couple of loops around the Imperial Palace, which is quite amazing. After the run, we had a bit of time before heading to the airport, so I walked back up and wandered around taking some pictures. We got really lucky with the weather, as you can see.
