Kamakura Now

I went to Kamakura last weekend and visited Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine. I particularly wanted to see the Great Ginkgo Tree.

In March of this year, the Shrine's 1,000 years old Ginkgo Tree got uprooted by a huge storm. The tree was transplanted, hoping that it would survive through new growth at the broken trunk. And it did survive!

Look at these new buds! Just wonderful!!
