Kamakura - 鎌倉市

recommendation by chema

Travelling inside Japan is quite expensive, so if you are planning a just-Tokyo-travel but you don't wanna miss the traditional Japan, Kamakura is definitely a must go. It's located just 50 kilometers south-west of Tokyo and well connected.

Although nowadays it's a small turistic town, It was a de facto capital during the Kamakura shogunate (1185–1333).

Its main spots are the Shinto Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gū shrine and the Kōtoku-in temple, which includes a famous Great Buddha.
