Kamakura Tour with a Local Guide

Kamakura (鎌倉) is a very popular day trip from Tokyo, with 65 Buddhist temples and 19 Shinto shrines and its Kotoku-in, a big statue of Buddha, dating back to the 13th century.

It was also the city where Japanese Zen Buddhism first developed, and where the Nichiren school of Buddhism was created.

Thanks to this exceptional heritage, Kamakura is only second to Kyoto for the number of major historical temples.

Explore the sights of Kamakura on a 8-hours private tour with a professional knowledgeable guide.
