Kamakura is called Samurai town because the old Shogunate capital of Japan was there in the 12th-14th century.

Kamakura has many historically significant Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, so you may be able to somehow still feel the samurai power at the historic sites, such as Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine, Hasedera Temple and the Great Buddha! Of course, we will lead you to local recommended spots, too!!
