Good unknown place of Kamakura


Good unknown place of Kamakura

I would like to introduce Kamakura recommended spots and delicious food.

Nature-rich Kamakura surrounded by mountains and the sea is a place where you will not get tired of visiting many times. There are many temples and shrines that can enjoy flowers throughout the four seasons, especially in the period of hydrangea and autumn leaves with stunning views. It will be unforgettable memories to spend hours of non-routine such as zen meditation, sutra and photography experience. Of course, do not forget to pray for love fulfillment, work luck, money luck-up etc. Kamakura has many delicious famous shops and well-established stores. Let’s enjoy the Kamakura stroll by finding the shop and the favorite sightseeing spots!

This teaching fitted to the way of lifestyle at the time of the samurai ‘s self – improvement, spreading among the samurai in a blink of an eye.
