Full description
Kamakura was the ancient capital of Japan and now a major day trip spot both for Japanese and foreign tourists. Start your tour in Tokyo so you do not need to worried about transportation from/to Tokyo! Take the JR train forabout 1. 5 hrs and Eno-den, the local lovely train in Kamakura. The Great Buddha is the second largest Buddha in Japan and surprisingly it is located in open air! Hase temple is famous for flowers especially hydrangea so you can enjoy various flowers in season. There are also many interesting Budda, Kannon, and gods of wealth so you can make a wish to be rich! For lunch, you can eat typical local foods there. Kamakura is famous for seafood but if you do not like it, other food can be arranged based on your request. Then visit Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine and enjoy shopping at Komachi street. If you would like to stay longer for shopping after the tour, you can. If you would like to visit other places like Hokokuji temple with its bamboo forest or Enoshima island, plans can be changed.

A worthwhile day trip

A worthwhile day trip with a very personable, competent guide, who moved safely through the entire jungle of trains and stations. Apart from the well-known temples and the big Buddha, she led us to a typical Japanese restaurant with excellent food and explained many details to us, but was still talking non-stop. The nice weather made the trip a highlight.

Was good way to spend an day, see the old capital of Japan .

The guide was fluent in English and had excellent knowledge of the city. We travelled by metro and bus. She joined us for lunch, guiding us through the meal.
