This week went by real fast, a lot of it work but I did manage to get some sightseeing done. I first went to the Shinjuku Gyoen park to the Hanami (flower viewing) so I could see the Sakura (cherry blossom) in full bloom. The entrance to the park was packed with both tourists and locals so I tried to circle around to the other side where I knew it would be far less crowded. The park itself is beautiful and I spent around 2 hours just walking around and taking photos.
Together with my two roommates we visited Kamakura and saw the Daibutsu in the Kōtoku-in temple and a few other temples as well. At the end of the day we went to Inamuragasaki onsen (Hot Spring), just 20 minutes outside Kamakura. The onsen had black water which is supposed to be good for your skin and while it was relaxing I found it a bit boring, especially after 30 minutes. I guess hot springs aren't for me. I did like that they had 3 different baths though. They had hot spring baths both inside and outside and there was also a cold water one outside which turned out to be my favorite. After 30 minutes in the hot spring I nearly fell asleep so the cold water remedied that pretty quick.
