The aim of this tour is to experience the historical past of Kamakura through the discovery of its sacred monuments. Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gū is renowned for preserving the samurai spirit of the place, whereas Kenchoji is known for the sane and restful atmosphere that it provides. This didactic journey is a way of enjoying the splendor of the Japanese vegetation: hence the recommendation of Hokoku-ji, a temple possessing its lush garden and the exceptional Bamboo forest Grove alongside. This journey will come to a close with a cup of matcha tea at Jomyo-ji temple’s elegant rock garden. Immerse yourself in Kamakura’s environmental and cultural elements!
