Another highlight!

Today the mission was over and I had booked a tour to Kamakura. Let's just say in one word: STELLAR. It was an hour train ride from Tokyo and is an area with appr. 100 shrines and temples. Just superb and I cannot believe how fortunate I am to see all this. This shrine is for women who have lost a child through still birth or miscarriage and the deities help their little souls to go to the heavens so they can be in the afterlife.
Aside form the beautiful Shinto and Bhudist temples, the local scenery is so pretty and to top
it off we saw a traditional wedding ceremony in a Shinto temple. Take a look.

Catching up on blogging. Glad to see that you're able to mix business with pleasure and that you're having a grand time in Japan. Lovely photos of Japan. Can't wait to hear more about your trip?
