    A little bit off the main tourist area in Kamakura but an interesting shopping area where most of the locals shop and dine out. Everything you can possibly need for a Japanese household and then some. Shopping areas in local towns are always a great area to explore.

    My colleague who has lived in Japan for a number of years that this is the must-visit shop in Kamakura. Its specialty is the thin bird cookies that it has been baking for decades. When I went there in the evening, this store at the main shopping street of the town was packed with mostly local ladies buying the cookies and other sweets. While I thought the famous cookies were tasty, to me they were just plain without filling. I found nothing particularly addictive about them, though I did purchase a box as a souvenir. I think the cookies are for those who either grew up on them and long for nostalgia or for kids who just want something to munch on.
    I would not give it a miss entirely if you are in town but this is a good cookie shop that you do not need to go out of your way for.

    I have come to Japan (Yokohama) for a scientific conference (3 persons group) and we had a free afternoon. So , we've decided to visit something traditional (some temples). One of our group was familiar to this region. We took the train to Kamakura with the intention to see the temples from that hill. It rained all day but it didn't matter.It was beautiful. At some point we've entered at the Otaru Music Box shop. It was like a piece of heaven because I love music boxes. It has a welcoming air and there you can imagine you are a child again. The staff was very polite and eager to help you and show you how the music boxes sounded. It is a shop with traditional art pieces. I fell in love!!!!!!Thank you for creating me a great memory!!!

    We found the shop almost by mistake, and at the time we didn't know much about Samurais, but the guy that was there working was great with us, going through the story of every samurai picture we asked about, making us feel really passionate about them. We end up buying a couple of souvenirs and very keen on doing some research on everything he recommended on our visit. I'd definitely recommend to stop by and learn more things about japanese culture. It was awesome.

    Starting in 1874 in a Hotel, William Curtis began introducing Western-style meats to the Japanese. In 1900, the Kamakura Ham Tomioka Shokai was born. These products are well-known all over Japan & make great gifts & souvenirs (many products need refrigeration, but not Pork Jerky, etc.). We tried the Block Ham, Chorizo Sausage, and the new Lemon & Parsley Pork Links. Not cheap, but excellent quality.

    If you have time, go to their Factory where you can see a little collection of their history. Only in Japanese, but the sandwich wrappings from 1935 department stores look interesting.
