Kamakura sightseeing with Bob and Zydre

My Uncle Bob and Auntie Zydre visited Japan for about 10 days, honouring Yuki and I by coming all the way from Australia to attend our Shinto wedding ceremony. We had a great time together in Kamakura and Izu, where they also came to attend our performance at Dance of Shiva. Here are some photos of our Kamakura sightseeing trip.
