What to expect
Receive a pickup from your Tokyo hotel in the morning, continuing by train on the 1-hour trip to nearby Kamakura (own expense). During the course of your visit you’ll move between sights both on foot and by train, walking a total of 2.5 miles (4 kilometers). Start your Kamakura visit at the Hase Temple, a site that’s also known as the ‘Temple of the Flower.’ View the temple’s famous Kannon statue, depicting the Buddhist goddess of mercy’s 11 faces and more than 1,000 arms. Each of the faces is said to represent a different stage of enlightenment. You’ll also see the temple’s 30-foot (9-meter) gilded wooden statue, known to be the biggest wood sculpture in the entire country. Finish by exploring the temple’s garden ponds and by checking out the hundreds of small statues found in Jizo-do Hall. Continue your Kamakura trip at Kotokuin Temple, a religious site that dates to the 13th century. During your stop you’ll admire the temple’s famous Great Buddha statue, considered among the most well-known religious icons in Japan. This 42-foot (13-meter) icon is situated just outside against the backdrop of the nearby hills. Make the last stop of the day at Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine. This famous symbol of Kamakura was originally built in the 11th century, when it was created in honor of Emperor Ojin and Minamoto no Yoritomo. You’ll conclude your trip by enjoying a traditional lunch at a local high-end restaurant, after which you’ll be dropped off back at your Tokyo hotel in the afternoon. Please note that entrance fees are at the traveler's own expense.

Apr 2018 • Couples
We were fortunate in having an excellent guide. Zushi was local and had an amazing store of knowledge combined with a great personality - he made the trip! I found the hundreds of small statues at the Hase Temple quite emotional, the gardens were beautiful. The Great Buddha is certainly impressive. A special highlight was the fact that a wedding was taking place at the Tsurugaoka Hachimango Shrine and we were able to witness the whole procession and hear the traditional musicians - what a privilege! Our lunch was excellent. We made our own way back to Tokyo - the trains are so organised and efficient that anyone with half a grain of common sense can travel by themselves in Japan.
