To relax in nature on the waterfront, set out to explore at least one of the major beaches and lookout points in Kamakura. Yuigahama and Shichirigahama are two of the more popular spots for sunbathing in this coastal location. Other noteworthy beaches worth visiting are Inamuragasaki and Zaimokuza Beach.
Some of the most photographed historical sites of the area are the places of worship that have faithfully stood here for many generations. The Kotokuin Temple and the Myohonji Temple are two of Kamakura’s best examples of these. Take the time to enjoy the solemn atmosphere at these special places.
While vacationing in the Kamakura area, make time in your schedule and investigate the local gardens to escape the bustle of the city and admire a diverse range of plants. Like many botanical gardens in the country this delightful place plays its part in protecting many plant species.
When the weather’s fine, pay a visit to Shakado Kiritoshi, where you can spend time outdoors. It is one of those special places where visitors of all ages congregate to enjoy the fresh air and greenery.
Kamakura is one of those special destinations that rewards savvy travellers who step off the main tourist trail. If you’ve still got time up your sleeve, be sure to check out the Great Buddha, the Enoshima Aquarium, the Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu Shrine and the Engakuji.
