Putting these two together in one post probably seems strange, been as they are no where near one another, but in the last few days of our trip we were eager to get back to Tokyo one last time. So Osaka and Kamakura came together in 48 hours or so. Osaka was a maze that drove us loopy! The castle was worth the insanity. We crashed through Kamakura laden with luggage and very sleep deprived. It also happened to be a national holiday. And raining. We crawled to the giant Buddha. Then crawled back to Tokyo for chocolate cake and sad goodbyes to Japan after an incredible 3 1/2 weeks.
