Overview

Kamakura is a coastal old town close from Tokyo famous for its numerous temples and shrines that carry the long history of samurais and zen Buddhism. Some of you might say "Kyoto is the best", but I don't think so. I'd like you to enjoy Kamakura's rustic tranquility and its verdant forests surrounding the precious structures which would wash out your daily weariness..

What to Expect

It is said there are about 150 of temple and shrines in Kamakura.
Some are big and well know, some are not but still impressive.
But all of them have their own distinctive aroma and interesting.
If you have any particular place you want to go, please name it out.
But if you don’t, please leave it on me.
Following is the list of the temples and the shrines that I recommend especially..
Also I have written down the post popular route.

If you ever get tired of visiting temples and shrines.
Let’s spend time at KOMACHI DORI.
This is the exciting thoroughfare remind you the festival street. You can find a various foods and unique souvenirs there,.
Let's just stroll about and enjoy the energy that bounce around the area. It is truly the fun place to visit.

AA: Temples and Shrine
(1) KOTOKUIN temple : Famous for the great Buddha statue.
(2) HASEDERA-temple  : The most beautiful temple in Kamakura.

(6) ENKAKUJI-temple : Great Zen Buddhist temple complexes in Japan .
