Goryo-jinja shrine, Hase

The Enoshima Electric Railway or the Enoden as it more commonly referred to is a small railway line in Kanagawa prefecture that runs between Fujisawa and Kamakura, the latter being the location of a giant Amida Buddha statue. This sketch is from the entrance to the Goryo-jinja shrine, in Hase, just two or three stops before Kamakura. Here there is a railroad crossing just before the entrance. I think it makes for an interesting contrast.

Keifuku train, Kyoto

The Keifuku Randen line is an old tram line, actually, the only tram line left in Kyoto. It is an interesting option if you’re visiting Kyoto as it stops close by a number of shrines and temples.

Not entirely sure which station this is, it’s based on a reference from a while back, but I believe it was Arashiyama.
