This is where I live - Kamakura beach side

As many of you know, I live in Kamakura, Kanagawa, Japan. We moved in here about 4 yrs ago from Central Tokyo after getting sick to be surrounded by high-rise. My husband chose this area, and he was right about it!

Kamakura used to be a capital of Japan in 12th Cen. Many famous writers, politicians and other celebrities love to live here as it's surrounded by beautiful beaches and mountains.
Also you can cherish Mt. Fuji from our area. Over the weekends, many people visit here from Tokyo Metropolitan area and other places. It's a kind of sightseeing spot, too.
Today, I only post the beack-side of Kamakura area. I'll post about the mountain-side of Kamakura when I take some shots!!

Hi Mimie.
Oh, Hawaii?
I know what you felt as many people here say Shonan area (including Kamakura) looks like Hawaii, too!

*Kumi said...

Hi Gina.
Right, if we could fly easily...

*Kumi said...

Hi Tasha.
I hope you can visit your dad in Okinawa with your little one very soon. As I wrote you in e-mail, my daughter flew when she was 12 months for the first time and didn't have any problem at all
Give it a try! I bet your dad is waiting!
