One Day Trip From Tokyo: Kamakura

If your hotel or hostel is in Tokyo, you could go to Kamakura!
Kamakura is located in Kanagawa prefecture. There was a Kamakura whogunate government 800 years ago, they put effort in tourism. Maybe that’s why we could see so many temples there, I assume.

Access

If you are staying around Shinjuku or Ikebukuro, the Shonan-Shinjuku line is the easiest way to go to Kamakura.

Or you could take Odakyu line from Shinjuku station, transfer to Enoden line at Fujisawa station.

How to go look around?

There are some model course to look around in Kamakura. You could take a look in Kamakura INFO.
If you have a skate board, it would be a nice place to skate around.

When I went there, I had rental bicycle, so I can go anywhere I want to.
There are some rental bicycle shop around Kamakura station.

What to see?

There is a famous big statue of Buddha in Kamakura. I think it’s in your must-see list!
Other than that, you could find what you wanna see there. There was a map of kamakura around the station. You could decide where you want to go at that time.
And there is a beach which is about 10minutes away from station by bicycle.
There are so many temples and shrine in Kamakura, and each temple has difference. To me, most interesting one was the Beniarai-benzaiten-ugafuku shrine.

I hope you have a great day in Kamakura!
