Experience Location

Kamakura is a coastal town in Kanagawa Prefecture that's now a pocket of traditional culture with a number of historical monuments such as Engakuji Temple, Hasedera Temple, and Hachimangu Shrine. For that reason it's sometimes called the little Kyoto of the Kanto region. It features all kinds of shop fronts in Komachi Street selling traditional crafts, wares, and local food. The resident bronze Daibutsu (Big Buddha) stands tall looking out onto the sea, and with close access to lush hiking trails and beaches like Enoshima, Kamakura makes for a wonderful getaway into nature.
