Haiku Poem – 藤沢での親切

ask Koban way
temple beauty awe inspire
return friendly isle

(Ben version)
ふじさわ で しんせつ うけて しま まわり

(Michiko version)
こうばん で みち を たずねて てら めぐり

A day of travel began with finding a bank. This meant going to the local Koban to ask the policeman where to go. The policeman was very helpful and explained the way. It was complicated since I had to go down a street, into a tunnel, make a right turn, then a left turn out of the tunnel, and walk straight until the bank was on the left. After getting some money, I visited many temples around Kamakura. The temples all had their own unique feel. The natural beauty around the temples was inspiring. I was surprised to see so much green. Also, when I returned to Enoshima, I had a better experience than before. A friendly young woman carefully answered many questions and was very nice to guests.
