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.

  • Quite big shrine with a big wooden gate. Free to visit. Not possible to get or see inside the main building. The park is wide, a bit empty but has some nice trees.
  • Place the drink play pranks and natural boost in the Metro back and forth quietly immersed in thought. 呑兵衛 can clean the temple and say excuse me?!

  • Every year seeking Fortune bamboo in 10 days during January, and crowded with many people. Handful of luck is also ideal for gifts.

  • Weeping cherry tree bloomed very nicely. Yoshino cherry tree yet it seems.

  • The Temple of the Nichiren sect. Temple renovation is complete, but work is ongoing. I think cherry blossoms in the spring is the best time. 12/2016, 5 second visits.
