City Overview, Kamakura: 5 reviews and 7 photos


Kamakura is a short 30 minute train ride from Tokyo. The city is littered with Temples and Shrines, and has a small town feel compared to Kyoto, Japans major Shrine city. Some of the most famous sites lye in this town as well. You must go here if you can't make it to Kyoto.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
