Ofuna Kannon and cherry blossoms

Visited:10:30~11:30 of 14 April 2017
All of the pictures and movie were taken by iPhone

I went to the Ofuna Kannon-ji temple to see fully bloomed cherry blossoms and Kannon statue.
It is located on top of the small hill near Ofuna station in Kamakura city,Kanagawa prefecture.
For me it’s been a very long time to go there since I was child.
Nevertheless I often see it from the window of the train.

Before I headed to there, I took a picture from the pedestrian bridge at west exit of JR Ofuna station.
