I stayed two nights during Kamakura fireworks. The guesthouse is in really nice, old fashioned Kamakura neighborhood. The owner Masa is very friendly and informative. I paid 500 yen extra to get very healthy, vegetarian breakfast. The only thing it bothered me was the dark mold in the shower room. It has been very humid in Japan, but I think... More

I spent one night here staying in a dorm room. Slept on tatami mat, the guesthouse was clean and comfortable, hot showers, wifi access, free tea. Staff were friendly and helpful, I hired a bicycle for the day which was a bit old but worked fine and I rode around most of the the city with it. Good location near... More

First things first: the bed was very very comfortable and the curtain gave me all the privacy I needed even if I was in the shared room. I had never stayed in a room with tatami mats, so that was obviously a plus. Also the showers. I don’t know if anyone else mentioned them, but the shower was very refreshing... More

The guesthouse are clean and safe. The staff are very friendly and will go the extra mile for you. We always loves the breakfast that Kamejikan... More

This is our second time staying at Kamejikan and this time, it feels like going home. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Things changed for the better compared to last year. The beds are clean and we love the futton. They kept the place well. We stayed here for 5d4n and was pretty sad to leave. It is very... More

We came here for a few nights and stayed both in the small room and the dorms. It's a smaller place so room bookings fill up quickly, and I can see why. This is about as traditional Japanese as you can get. The hotel dates from the Taisho era and was once the house of a wealthy family. The place... More

Glad that we chose Kamejikan for our 2 nights stay in Kamarura! I love this place so much! Nice staffs, friendly, kind and helpful! They made good breakfast for us as well! I'd like to spend my time at the common area instead of just stay in my bed! And just a kindly remind, please keep your voice down at... More

Peaceful, cosy, clean, very friendly staff (we see one of the best zen temples thank to the advice of the staff). Everything ok (we had had still water, space in the fridge, hot water, wifi, etc.). It's a very nice experience to stay there, and Kamakura has to be visited if you are in Japan!

Just choose Kamejikan without hesitation. The staff are really friendly, doing their best to offer the service. The place is also nice and special, representing kind of icon of the ancient style and culture of Japan.
