Offers a wide variety of streetfood. If your thing is to check every stall (like we are) to try different food, then Komachidori will definitely satisfy the inner streetfoodie in you.

I live in Japan and travel a lot domestically. Komachidori is by far one of the best shopping streets I have visited. I've been there many times, and it never disappoints. You can get SO MANY great gifts and souvenirs on that street. Most notably,...More

A great day here in Kamakura, the wee shops & restaurants were just wonderful, we bought most of our gifts for home from here. Food in restaurants were also gorgeous, its said to be a smaller version of Kyoto & was just wonderful

I have lived in Kamakura for quite some time, so I end up going down to Komachidori once every few months or so. It never ceases to amaze me how crowded that street can get on weekends...or any day for that matter. Although crowded, it...More

Entertaining time for shopping. Get to stroll up street to visit all the many different shops and get interesting goods to bring home for grandkids and family. Must walk when in Kamakura, Japan

Yes, it was full of tourists during cherry blossoms season; but that's part of the energy and charm. This street has store fronts on both sides, often packed with people but manageable. We found silk scarfs, all kinds of food to sample, souvenirs shopping to...More

Really enjoyed our visit to Kamakura, there were plenty of souvenir shops, cafes and restaurants on this street. We spent half a day here including lunch. There were a lot of gift items featuring the shiba inu and we went crazy snapping up cute gifts...More

This long shopping street full of enticing cafes, restaurants, craft and souviners shops is must visit place. Just off the main road and parallel to it this street runs from the station square right up toward the main shine. Busy and full of life.

Its quite a long shopping street, there are many souvenirs shop, mainly snack shops and restaurants. But it was quite packed in the weekend, suggest to go on the weekday.

Kamakura/Enoshima Day Trip Itinerary advice (11 Replies)
Hi Everyone, I've read many articles and forums here, I think it got me more confused. Can anyone help with an Itinerary and also let me know if I am trying to pack too many things in 1 day... My Airbnb is located near Nishi-Shinjuku 5 Chome station, and we plan on purchasing the Enoden Free Pass (Longer, but round trip is included). Would I find my way to the main Shinjuku Station from here? Here are the places that I've marked down that we should check out, but I don't know...More

There are too many places to go around. Enoshima alone takes more than half a day. It depends on what month you are going.

I lived fairly close to Ofuna Kannonji Temple for nearly 30 years, but I have never been there. If you stand on the right side of the train (Yokosuka line, Tokaido line etc.), you can see the exterior from the train. The return will be on the...More
