Tenzin in Japan part 2: Sightseeing in Kamakura

After our first round of gigs in Tokyo and Kamakura, it was time for a bit of sightseeing. Kamakura is also known as "Beach Kyoto", for its large number of temples and abundance of traditional architecture. Tenzin also did a bit of sightseeing around Tokyo, but I stayed in Kamakura for the next few days as I had another event down there, so I'll leave that for Tenzin to blog on.

I'll be posting a selection of photos here but you can see a whole lot more on our Facebook album, "Tenzin in Japan".

The Benzaiten cave at Hase Dera. Benzaiten is the Japanese version of Hindu goddess of music, Saraswati. This cave is a very powerful place.
