We visited Sugimotodera Temple, the oldest temple in Kamakura yesterday. Established in 734. it has moss-covered stone stairs as you can in the pictures. Although I cannot show you here, inside the mail hall sit several Buddhist statues. After taking off your shoes and entering into the dim hall, you can get very close to them.

Highly recommed place although a bit far from the Kamakura Station.

“ Easy and wonderful Kamakura ”

Very Good
1 year ago Traveler: Annabelle -   Tour Guide: Hiroshi

We had a very good time. Our guide Hiroshi was very polite, conversant and knew Kamakura very well. Knowing which temples were the ones we will love to see. He also made good suggestions on what to have for lunch after reserving the place. We had an easy time moving around.

“ Wonderful tour ”

1 year ago Traveler: Socorro -   Tour Guide: Hiroshi

We loved the tour. Hiroshi picked up in our hotel and then we traveled to Kamaura. First we enjoyed a delicious japanese food in a very typical restaurant and then we visited the Temple of Buddah and a beauttiful shintoist shrine. He was very kind and explained us a lot of japanese culture and traditions. We are thinking tu return with our daughters and of course call Hiroshi again!
