Overview

For a quick tour of Kamakura, I suggest a 6 hour-tour. Kamakura is an ancient capital in Japan and the seat of the first military government of Japan. Choose one of the options as follows.
Big Buddha, Hase temple, Tsurugaoka Hachimangu, and Komachidori shopping street
Big Buddha, Tsurugaoka Hachimangu, Komachidori shopping street, Hokokuji temple,Jomyoji temple

What to Expect

You can make a quick tour in Kamakura, which was an ancient capital of Japan. Zen temples in Kamakura are simple, but solemn. You can feel a holy atmosphere with Japanese traditional culture such as Japanese powdered tea.
