What is Kamakura like ?

Tokyo was the last place that samurai held political power, and Kamakura was the first. The reason that Kamakura was chosen by the first samurai to be the capital during the time known as the "Kamakura period,” in the 12th century, was because it was a natural fortress surrounded by mountains, and had a strong capability for defense. Even 800 years later, Kamakura is still surrounded by mountains and ocean, and the buildings from that time, along with traditions and culture, continue on today. Only an hour’s travel away from Tokyo, it is a town with one of the most places to see.

Great Buddha of Kamakura
The Great Buddha in Kamakura is the second biggest in Japan, after the one in Nara. As the Great Buddha in Nara is housed inside a building, visitors can only look up at it from below, but the Great Buddha in Kamakura can be seen in detail from every angle.

Tea at Jomyo-ji Temple
Tea isn’t just for teatime. Looking out over a quintessentially Japanese garden perfectly capturing a glimpse of nature and taking a sip of hand-prepared Japanese tea is a traditional Japanese type of spiritual healing, relaxing the soul and allowing for introspection.

Zeniarai Benten Shrine
You walk up a sloping path like a valley cut between mountains and pass through an entrance that looks like the mouth of a cave to get to this shrine. It is said that if you wash money in the water that springs from the rocks, more money will come to you after you spend it.

Hi, my name is Calvin Caleb and Indonesia is where I am from. Made a decision to venture to Japan three years ago as an international student at Yokohama National University and currently living the final year of my college life. Personally, I would consider myself as a geek culture enthusiast and an avid cinephile; Japan, being the world's capital for popular culture has been absolutely gracious in terms of satisfying my nerdy needs. As a fellow foreigner, I understand that navigating through the vast urban area of Japan to discover these pop culture havens--and other interesting places for that matter--is by all mean not an easy task. For that reason, I'd like to help y'all to journey the concealed side of Japan! Halo teman2 semua! Nama gw Calvin Caleb!! Empat tahun lalu gw pindah ke Jepang untuk menuntut ilmu di Universitas Nasional Yokohama! Gw tuh sangat terobsesi dengan filem dan "geek culture", jadi bagi teman2 yang ingin mengeksplorasi aspek2 pop-culture di Jepang gitu hubungi gw deh, gak akan nyesel!! (My Rules) - Karena sy masih sekolah, rata2 sy bisa nge-guide 2-3 hari. - Sy cma bisa nge-guide di daerah Kanto (Tokyo, Yokohama/Kanagawa, Chiba, Saitama). Sy bisa rekomendasikan kenalan sy di luar kota kalau mw di guide di Osaka, Kyoto, dll - Sy bukan tur guide profesional, hanya sekedar pelajar yang ingin menunjukan betapa bagusnya Jepang dari mata seorang lokal. I hail from Indonesia. A movie buff and a forever geek. The name is Calvin Caleb but there's one other name that you may know me by, your friendly neighborhood Guide-Man!!

Ten-en Hiking Course
This is a hiking route from Kencho-ji Temple in Kita-Kamakura to Zuisen-ji Temple which takes about 30-45 minutes across the ridges of the mountain. This is a route that only those very familiar to Kamakura know of, so it’s never crowded, and is full of surprises as you realize how far the narrow paths have taken you.

Food in Kamakura
Kamakura is situated by the ocean, so there is a wealth of fresh seafood. Kamakura vegetables are also rated highly, even being proudly named on menus of many high-class restaurants in Tokyo.

Enkaku-ji & Kencho-ji Temple
These two huge temples capture the essence of Kamakura, and are about a ten-minute walk from each other. Among the oldest are a group of wooden buildings built over 700 years ago, and they embody the samurai sense of beauty with the strength and natural beauty of unlacquered wood.

Kamakura and the Ocean
The ocean is just a 15-minute walk or 5-minute drive away. In the summer there are many events such as fireworks, with Japanese bars and restaurants in beach houses lining up along the shore.

Enoshima
This small island is 25 minutes away from Kamakura by train, or 15 minutes by car with no traffic. Nowadays it is connected to the mainland by a bridge, but some time ago people could walk across during low tide. The island itself was a place for worshippers such as fishermen to visit.
