Our hosts are experts at navigating the intricate and priceless architecture of the area, ranging from flame-colored torii gates that mark the entrances to shrines, to magnificent Buddhist temples, swarming with locals and tourists alike. Kamakura’s crown jewel is the Amida Buddha at Kotoku-in, forged from bronze and exposed to the elements of this curious city. Surf culture thrives here, and you might want to grab a brew and throw a shaka at one of the local shacks, before delving into the fascinating history of Japan’s first feudal capital. Forest hikes give you the chance to reconnect with the earth, and morning meditation sessions are the best remedy for a busy mind. After all, this is where Buddhism took root in Japan…
You’ll cruise to the laid-back beach town of Kamakura, a mere hour south of Tokyo by train, and an essential stop in the search for tranquility in Japan. With its easy-going atmosphere and unique blend of spirituality and relaxation, a day trip to this quirky town will give you a breather from the million mph pace of Tokyo. You’ll get to thoroughly explore the town itself, which was the ancient feudal capital of Japan, and learn about its vital role in spreading Buddhism across the country. Your host will ensure you don’t miss out on the most notable attractions, like the spectacular Great Buddha or the Hokokuji Bamboo Forest, but they’ll also reveal to you curiosities and local spots that only a local would know…
