Japan : 鎌倉大仏

En français
We then left 江の島 for 鎌倉 and stop there first to see the 大仏 (or big Buddha) in 高徳院 (Kōtoku-in).
The 大仏 was made of Bronze in 1252. Before the Buddha was made of wood which was damage when a storm destroyed the temple containing it in 1248. The hall containing the Buddha was destroyed by storms and rebuild several time until a tsunami destroyed it for the last time in 1498. We turned around it a lot and took picture, the day was really hot and we were looking for shadow.
