Kamakura Day Trip

By September 26, 2013Japan, Tokyo

Less than an hour away from central Tokyo, Kamakura is a great destination for a day trip away from the busy metropolis.

A charming coastal town with an abundance of shrines and temples, Kamakura is almost a mini Kyoto, and like Kyoto, it’s past life as one of the capitals of Japan is evident as you trek up the hill through the beautiful historical monuments. It’s sandy beach is also home to some cool little beach bars and restaurants during the Summer months, many with a chilled out hippy vibe that makes you feel like you’re a million miles away from Tokyo.

Here’s some photos from a recent day trip.
