  • Beautiful big park, perfect for walking, hiking or trail running. Little slippy and rocky in places, wear good trainers or boots. Pretty views and many temples, shrines and a monument. Many picnic tables and lovely open grass areas for kids. About 20 minute walk from Kamakura station, lovely walk through residential areas
  • Charming little park along the Daibutsu Hiking Trail on the way to Kotoku-in Temple and the Giant Buddha of Kamakura.
  • Coming back again in autumn.
  • Simple but nice small Park at the top of the hill. There is the statue of the founder of the Kamakura Era, and you can see brown squirrels running around. The forest leading there is quite dark, and you're welcome by a refreshing brightness when reaching the park. No much shadow available though.
  • Small and not much space to wander around

Where to stay in Kamakura

Given the easy access from Tokyo via a number of public transport options, the vast majority of visitors to Kamakura choose to stay in the capital and head here for a day trip. If you feel there's too much to see in one day, then you'll be pleased to find a decent selection of accommodations in Kamakura itself. Down by the sea sit perhaps the most luxurious of the crop, with sea views high on the list of desires for those who stay here. Follow the river as it snakes inland past the train station, and you'll see a good number of more standard hotels, as well as particularly budget-friendly guesthouses.
