Details

Participate in this tour to enjoy a valuable experience in Kamakura and Enoshima from Tokyo by bus!

Your journey will start at Jomyo-ji Temple, which is ranked fifth among the five great temples of Kamakura. The temple had seven buildings, pagodas, and gardens in old times, but since many buildings were destroyed by fire, now we can only see just its main hall and gardens. At Jomyo-ji Temple, you can enjoy the delicious Matcha green tea before heading to Hokoku-ji Temple.

Hokoku-ji Temple is a small temple located in Eastern Kamakura. The temple was founded in the early years of Muromachi period, and it was the family temple of the ruling Ashikaga Clan, and later it became the family temple of the Uesugi Clan. The temple is famous for its beautiful small bamboo grove found behind the temple's main hall, consisting over 2000 dark green bamboo stalks.

After visiting Hokoku-ji Temple, you will have a Buddhist vegetarian cuisine as your lunch, for 45 minutes before heading to Kotoku-in Temple, where you will see the Great Buddha!

The Great Buddha is the symbol of Kamakura and one of the most famous attractions in Japan. The Great Buddha is the property of the Kotoku-in Buddhist temple of the Jodoshu sect and visitors are often overwhelmed by its majestic appearance. With an additional fee you can access the inside of the statue offering a unique experience and allowing you to see the casting technology of the Kamakura Age.
