What you’ll do

You’ll absorb the earthy atmosphere of this laid-back coastal town which lies just an hour away from busy Tokyo. With one of our friendly hosts by your side, get to know the fascinating history of its glory days as Japan’s first feudal capital, which happened to coincide with Buddhism's spread across the country. You’ll be able to take in the tranquil surrounding temples and shrines tucked away in the leafy green forest and see the famous Great Buddha statue, which attracts many from near and far. You’ll wander through the stone-laden streets, stop in at quirky curio stores, people watch and perhaps grab a bite to eat at one of the many organic restaurants. There are also scenic hiking trails, sunrise meditation sessions, surf shacks to enjoy a beer at and beaches on which to laze the day away, if that sounds like your thing. Whatever your speed, your host will make it happen and can’t wait to open your eyes to the natural splendor of Kamakura!

Our Picks

  • Take a train from Tokyo with a host to the historic coastal town of Kamakura

  • See famous Buddhist attractions like the Great Buddha (it really is pretty great)

  • Visit renowned Shinto shrines and temples along the leafy green forest trails - pure tranquility

  • Absorb the natural beauty of the forests and oceans that surround this beach town, and maybe stop in at a surf shack for a beer (or two, you’re on holiday!)

  • Explore an alternative part of Japan, away from the Tokyo bustle, with a host

  • Get to know a bit more about Japan’s heritage and feudal history through chatting with your host and exploring the town on foot

Wonderful Tour

We had a great day touring Kamakura with Carla! She showed us places that we were not aware of, giving us a great flavor of this beautiful area. Always friendly, she graciously answered all our questions and researched information for us. We would not hesitate to tour with her again!
