Explore Kamakura, the ancient capital of medieval Japan, and discover its temples and shrine.

Your personal tour guide will pick you up at your hotel and you will then take the train to Kamakura. The city, which was the first capital of medieval Japan, has perfectly preserved its traditional charm.

Begin your tour by visiting the Hase-dera temple and the Zeniarai Benten shrine. It is said that if you wash silver in water from its springs, it will multiply! Then, head to the feet of the enormous bronze Great Buddha. At 13 metres tall, it weighs more than 120 tonnes.

Be enchanted by the Hokokuji Temple bamboo garden and climb the stairs to the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu shrine.

The city is packed with traditional boutiques, where you can stock up on souvenirs before going back to your hotel.
