Day Trip from Tokyo: Kamakura's temples, shopping streets, and tasty treats
save list
Kamakura, a former capital of Japan teeming with historic shrines and temples, is about an hour south of Tokyo on the Yokosuka line. My favorites are Kita Kamakura's Engakuji (especially the tea terrace, a steep walk up stone steps up the far right cliff, when facing the temple) and Kenchoji temples (especially the walk up to Hansobo, a shrine perched on the mountain behind the temple, where you may catch a view of Mt. Fuji). Other musts: Great Buddha & snacking along the main shopping street.
