Walking in Spring

I went to Kita (north) Kamakura today. Kamakura is one of the city that Kamakura Shogunate was established in the end of twelve century. It takes about one hour from Tokyo by train. It is one of the very old cities like Kyoto. There are many temples and nature there. A lot of tourists enjoy the nature, historical temples and quiet atmosphere.
Today was so nice day, not cold and not hot. Now was good season for walking around the city. Many flowers bloom in temples. There are a lot of trees around them. I felt fresh air and relaxed watching green leaves and magnificent temples. I took some pictures.
