Hi +Lowell Sheppard very envious and looking forward to updates and photos. I hope to do cycle tour in Japan one day too. Have fun.

+Lowell Sheppard Welcome to G+ and thanks for creating a convenient place for us to follow your journey.

I believe it's common knowledge, but I'll share anyway. The building that housed the Great Buddha at Kōtoku-in in Kamakura was washed away by a tsunami in 1498. I'm not sure if there is a tsunami stone at the site, but there may be some other kind of memorial. That the statue survived the tsunami makes a fitting memorial in itself.
