Kamakura and the Great Buddha

Saturday Jean, Jo Ann and I visited Diabutsu, the Great Buddha of Kamakura, an hour train ride southwest of Tokyo. He is the largest Buddha in Japan at 40' tall and weighing 93 tons.
I received another Go shu in (red stamp) with the temple name, date and recognition that I was there. I enjoyed watching an art class draw the Buddha and surrounding temple buildings and wanted to join them for the day.
