Its a nice street to buy souvenirs, omiyage, food and art. From icecream to mochi, from yukata to magnets. Very crowded

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 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

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
