Kamakura Museum of Literature is close to Hase Temple.
We walked through a cut(kiritooshi) like the following.
There are many cuts in Kamakura. "Cuts or Kiritooshi"
are roads dug into hills or mountains; they are like short tunnels.
The museum contains materials about writers who lived in Kamakura. This house was built in 1936 as a villa for the noble Maeda Family. However, it was donated to Kamakura City in 1983, and it was opened to the public in 1985.
There is a rose garden on the grounds in front of the museum.
春の雪 (Spring Snow)
A famous Japanese writer named Yukio Mishima described a village that was modeled from the house in his novel "Spring Snow", so there is a rose named after that.
You can see the cut from the opposite side when you return to the gate.
Here is The Great Buddha behind the beautiful autumn colors.
This Buddha statue is a very famous and popular tourist destination in Kamakura.
The height, including the base, is 13.4m.
You can go inside the interior of this statue.
I felt it was truly autumn when I saw the Japanese pampas grass; pampas grass is a symbol of autumn.
American president Obama visited the Great Buddha in Kamakura two years ago. He visited Kamakura with his mother when he was a child and he enjoyed Maccha (the powder of green tea) ice bar. Since he loved and missed the ice bar, he enjoyed it again. The story became a popular topic in Kamakura, and many shops started to sell Maccha flavor ice bar. It was named "Obamaccha ice" after Obama and Maccha!
