Kamakura

This seaside town just 10 minutes by train from Yokohama is home to three important religious sites: the Buddhist temple Kotoku-in, its famous Daibutsu (Big Buddha) statue and the Shinto shrine Tsurugaoka Hachimangu. The temple’s main attraction is Daibutsu, Japan’s second-largest bronze Buddha (the largest is in Nara). It was cast in 1252 and was originally located inside the temple, but after the buildings were destroyed several times, it was moved outside. Tsurugaoka Hachimangu, a Shinto temple, was built in 1063 and sits at the center of Kamakura—the town grew up around it.
