    What to Expect
    Take a break from fast-paced Tokyo as you journey back in time to the serene temples, shrines and gardens of Kamakura on this day trip.

    Begin your excursion with a pickup from Shinjuku Keio Plaza Hotel or the Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal. Then head out by coach for a 30-mile (50-km) ride south to the city Kamakura, situated on Japan’s Sagami Bay. Start your Kamakura visit at Jomyo-ji Temple, enjoy matcha — powdered green tea — amid the refined and tranquil ambiance of a 400-year-old tearoom that looks out over a Japanese rock garden.

    Later visit Hokoku-ji Temple, a renowned temple whose highlight is its beautiful bamboo grove, and then the city’s famous Great Buddha, located at the complex of Kotoku-in Temple. This renowned bronze statue, dating to 1252, is considered a national icon. Peek inside the statue’s hollow interior, then gaze at the entirely of the figure, which towers over 43 feet (13 meters) high.

    Enjoy a Japanese style lunch and then head to Enoshima. Enoshima is a small island featuring some of the closest sandy beaches to Tokyo and it's a popular destination for locals. The tour concludes in Tokyo.

    The great Buddha statue is located in the nature in Kamakura, as if in the middle of nowhere. The walk (if you take a walk) from the station to the temple also interesting where you can feel the nature with clean air.

    It is all day trip but you are off and on the bus frequently. There are opportunities to walk around at the tea ceremony and you get free time to have a look around. So it was about 30 minutes from Tokyo to our first stop... More

    No, you are taken to the places in a bus. Once there the walking part is very doable. Very nice tour.
