What to Expect

You can learn what Kamakura Shogunate was like by visiting three main sites: Koutoku-in (The Breat Buddha), Hase Temple, and Tsurugaoka Hachimangu. Through this trip, you will learn what Samurai means to Japan and what newly born Buddhism sects during the Kamakura period influenced common people. You will also see the nature in Kamakura where many kinds of trees and plants are flourished.

Highlight of each site is as follows:

1. The Great Budda, "Daibutsu" of Kamakura is a bronze image of Amida. It is registered as a national treasure. The idea of constructing the great image was first conceived by Minamoto Yoritomo, the first Shogun of the Kamakura government.
2. An eleven-headed Kannon statue housed in Hase Temple. It is so big as it seems uneasy to sit in the temple house. It was curved with camphor tree in Nara and drifted to Kamakura shore in 736. It is said that the Kannon might save people from agony and suffering of this world.
3. The structure and location of Tsurugaoka Hachimangu: The bright orange building built on the top of the steep slope and faces to the direction of the sea below.
