I loved every single little thing of my trip to Japan, minus the humidity. But I particularly loved Kamakura.
You see I have always loved the sea. I was born in a city next to the mediterranean sea, and I have so many childhood memories at the beach, learning how to swim, dive, collecting seaweeds, seashells. The warm sand on your feet, the showers before getting back home, eating samwiches looking at the blue everywhere around you.. I love the waves and their melody, the fish and jellyfish, the seagulls, just everything about the sea makes me happy and relaxed. But I had never experienced the ocean. Some may think there's nothing really different, but to me, it was completely something else. The ocean is just uncredibly beautiful and mystical. Just standing in front of the ocean, it feels you're at the edge of the world, and time isn't anymore.
My first experience of the Ocean was in Japan, in Kamakura. And I loved the city so much. It was incredibly sunny, peaceful, quiet, lovely. It was like the perfect place to live and just take care of oneself.
I had one of the best times of my life there, looking at the waves going forth and back, the kids running with their parents on the beach, the warmth of the sun and the quietness of everything. No matter how much I think about it, I just feel so much in peace when reminded of that moment.
I wish I could just live there for a few months or year, in a little house with blue shutters and a garden full of hydrangea.
