Photo of the Day: Bubble Buddha

imageThe road to the Daibutsu at Kotoku-in is lined with souvenir shops, a few of which have large gum ball machines full of bouncy balls.

These are no ordinary bouncy balls, however. No—these are Buddha balls (and Enoden train balls). Seems a bit sacrilegious to me, but that’s just the way Kamakura rolls.
