Visiting Kamakura with Mom

22nd of September 2010, two days after my graduation ceremony, and 2 days before receiving news of my uncle's sudden passing. It was Mid-Autumn Festival.

No mooncakes or lanterns though, just me bringing mom to Kamakura to visit the Big Buddha.

In the morning, mom, dad and I had breakfast at Doutor Coffee.

Then mom and I went on our way.

I was in Kamakura back in January. That was winter.

It was rather warm when we reached Kamukara. Neither mom and I could stand the sunlight.

So we decided to hang out in a restaurant for some lunch first.

Nice beef slices

Delicious rice

I remember it was a great meal.

The dessert was exquisite too.

Banana crepe

Ice cream crepe

Hanging out in the restaurant for nearly two hours, it was about to empty out. The Boyz 2 Men album they were playing had looped twice.

So we went on our way again.

And finally reached the Big Buddha.

Then we returned to the Kamakura station to catch a train back to Shinjuku.

It was a Mid-Autumn Festival without mooncakes and lanterns, just a peaceful afternoon in Kamakura, and after that, dad rejoined us for dinner.
