Overview

Kamakura was once the seat of the first Shogunate government in Japan, which was established
by Minamoto Yoritomo in the 12th century, who was a lord of Samurai warriors. During Kamakura
period, Buddhism developed among the common people and influenced arts and structures. In
this ancient city, there are many historic structures such as temples, statues and shrines.

What to Expect
