  • The Temple period had a major power. Cathedral at that time was located at inamuragasaki elementary school stood on so and had about 40 sub-temples and accompanying buildings around. His Majesty and memory, place is a temple is also high, and soon the station made very small. Until the packed schedule, and do not have into a tourist route. Still, in the early morning of the cherry blossom season is recommended.

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.
