Kamakura is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Japan with easy access from Tokyo, I'll pick up you at your staying hotel and take you to one day trip to Kamakura which is located about 50km southwest of Tokyo. Kamakura was the seat of the first military government called Shogunate during the period from the end of 12th century to the early 14th century. Then Kamakura has many historical and cultural sites and attracts visitors all over the world as well as Kyoto and Nara.
At your hotel in Tokyo
The temple is one of the Zen temples established in 1282. Visitors can enjoy many temple facilities like magnificent gates, Buddha hall, and landscape garden which were created more than 700 years ago along the valley eroded from the hill country.
The temple is also a Zen Buddhist temple founded in 1334. Visitors can enjoy walking around bamboo forest and beautiful dry landscape garden as well as matcha tee at the wooden rest house.
This Shinto shrine was established in 1063 by Minamoto Yoritomo who was the founder of Kamakura Shogunate which was the first warrior government in the Japanese history. So the shrine had been regarded as a protector shrine of the warrior families and now the most symbolic sightseeing spots in Kamakura.
Visitors can enjoy shopping traditional souvenirs and Japanese sweets.
An outdoor bronze statue of Amida Buddha standing on the ground of Kotokuin Temple. With the height of 13.35meters, it is the second largest Buddha statue in Japan.
The temple is an independent temple established in 736 and regarded as sister temple of Hasedera Temple of Nara because the same statues of eleven-headed Kannon are enshrined. Various kinds of flowers are enjoyed and breathtaking panorama of Pacific Ocean is commanded at the observation deck.

Hi Steve, Thank you for your warm message. I also enjoyed being with you. Have a nice trip to Kyoto! Yoshi
Mr Yoshi had accommodated us in many ways and made sure we had a wonderful time in Japan. He gave the group a very personal touch in the planning of his tour, understanding the like and dislike of the group. Even when the change of season did not show the scenery in good view, he will ensure you do not miss a single thing with photos that showcase the location at its best, and it also showcase the level of preparedness Mr Yoshi takes. We are also loving all his favourite restaurants and recommendation, a true foodie!!!
