Overview

Are you interested in Zen Buddhism? Kamakura is the best place to go. There are many Zen Buddhist temples and you can enjoy maccha green tea in the temple's site or Zen vegetarian meal in a specified restaurant. The big Buddha is waiting for you sitting cross legged and putting both feet on his thighs. In the Komachi Dori shopping street, there are a lot of small shops full of attractive goods.

What to Expect

Kamakura is a site of the first military government and attracts you through its simple but serene Zen Buddhist atmosphere and samurai culture. You can enjoy a mixture of old Zen temples and modern, charming boutiques on the Komachi Dori shopping street as well as beautiful ocean view. You can choose other temples such as Hokokuji temple which is famous for its beautiful bamboo garden, Jomyoji temple where you can enjoy traditional Japanese powdered tea, Kenchoji temple, or the biggest Zen temple in Kamakura. You can even enjoy Zen vegetarian food for lunch.
