Daibutsu Hiking Trail - Kita-Kamakura, Parting Shots from Kōtoku-in and Hase - Part 7

These are the last parting shots from my New Year's Daibustsu Hike. The first if of one of the guardian Nio at the entrance gate (or Nio-mon) to Kōtoku-in. The second is of a shimekezari. This New Year's wreath is hung over doorways or on doors to welcome the Shinto spirits. The third shot is of the crowded street leading up to Hase-dera Buddhist temple. It is one of the most famous temples in Kamakura and was founded in the 8th century. The last shot is of a lolly-pop that I glanced upon and quickly took a shot as I was making my way back to the Hase train station with my family.
