Canned Bread Vending Machine

This vending machine is in my local park and walk by it almost every day. I always wonder who would buy them. I know they are a type of emergency/survival food and they stock up well for more than a few years but that very fact makes me suspicious that they are already pretty old. The vending machine also looks like it's been there since 70's or something.

Got off at Hase station. Almost two hours since I left home.

Enoden Hase station

The Great Buddha (national treasure)

I've seen it many times on different medias but still it's bigger than I imagined.

Incense burner

You can go inside the Buddha. Entrance fee 20 yen lol.

The back side

Going in.
I'm glad it was not 200 yen.

Hase-dera (Hase temple)

卍 pond.


One of the largest wooden Kannon is placed inside this building but no photo is permitted. It's pretty impressive (9m tall) and beautiful.

Yuigahama beach

Kamakura Music Box Museum

Some music box pictures from the last trip to Kamakura.

These guys look familiar...

Though it's a tiny museum, it's definitely worth a visit.

It's that season again.

Spotted it on the way home near my place. I hope no one disturbed it.

Tonkotsu (pork bone broth) Ramen

500 yen w/ kae-dama (free another serving of noodle) at Hakata Tenjin, Shibuya. I usually eat the first batch without adding anything but for the second batch, I add a spoonful of minced garlic (not the spoon in the picture but a regular one), a lot of beni shōga (pickled ginger), and house blend spice.


Headed for Kamakura to finish my pilgrimage but when I got off at Yokohama station, I found the line that connects Yokohama and Kamakura was temporarily not in operation due to some switch trouble :( so I decided to have a short walk around Yokohama station east exit.
