"The Buddah!" Kamakura - Day Trip Tip by Breen

Kamakura - Day Trip, Tokyo: 24 reviews and 26 photos

by Breen

This one took me a long time to find because I got off at the wrong station, get off at Kamakura if you are taking the train, nothing with the an extension to the name, just KAMAKURA! :)

Anyway, this was quite something to see, a very old Buddah statue which has been sitting for hundreds of years in this spot has lost part of its structure but the main body remains fully intact. There is even a small area to go inside if you are interested. This is mostly for history people, if you have no interest in seeing a statue this isn't really worth it to you!

Address: Kamakura-shi, Kanagwa-ken
Directions: There are signs everywhere which lead you in a circle but you will get there if you get off at the righ station!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
