Guest house Kamejikan is located in old Kamakura area and only 3 minutes walk to the sandy beach. The building is 90 years old and originally built as a residence for a wealthy family, then renovated into ...More the guest house in 2011. "Kamejikan" means "turtle time" in Japanese and it is named in hopes that our guests would spend relaxing slow time. Also, we care about sustainability-minded management by using eco-friendly and fair trade products. All the staff loves travel and we would be happy to share our experiences. Staying at the traditional Japanese wooden architecture could be one of your special experiences in Japan. We welcome you to visit us at "kamejikan". Less
