Lunch in Kamakura

Posted on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 | 0 comments

We drove to Kamakura on Sunday and had lunch there after visiting the family burial plot. I wish I could remember the name of the temple where the cemetery is located, but it's escaping me right now. It isn't one of the major temples in the area, but the grounds are incredibly serene and beautiful. ***Update: the temple's name is Zuisen-ji; Click here for the Wiki link

The oldest graves in the cemetery are in this little cave

Marinated eggplant, a potato-like vegetable carved into a leaf, greens, mushrooms, and another sounds a lot better in Japanese

Roasted eel, edamame, fish cake, small omelette, boiled chestnut still in its shell...the pinkish stick is ginger
