Japanese Characters for Ofuna

Ofuna is an area south of Tokyo, technically part of Kamakura. It's largest tourist attraction is the large Kannon (female Buddha) peeking out from the trees on top of a huge hill overlooking the station. The effect is incredibly impressive. Especially at night, when it is light up. The picture on the bottom is a shrine I happened upon when I pathetically got lost trying to find the path to the Kannon. I didn't mind.
