  • This is a very small car station, the wrong words, the impression is the operator's car station, but the pilgrimage to the Holy Road is an endless arrival. As the hot blood basket animation, "The basketball master" of the scene, to the present field is really super high, especially with the back side of the sea and the car over the instantaneous, each kind of memories are really great! But wait a little bit for the car to get to the station to take a picture of the memories, about 10-15 minutes a train

  • The background of the place in which it was simply the slam. The train tracks behind the pretty Beach 360 degree. He rises up the school. When I went back and People's Republic of China tourists to coincide with enoden passing shots to take, and a lot of revelation. Once you have the slam.

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.
