Kamakura

Our scrapbook notes about Kamakura

Kamakura is a city located south-west of Tokyo. The city is on the coast of Japan, making it a fairly popular beach destination in the summer. Getting to Kamakura is fairly easy from Tokyo, and should only take you under an hour from the capital. Kamakura is a small city but there is plenty to offer the average tourist. The city has many shrines, historical monuments, temples and even one of Japan's largest Buddhas.
