Itinerary

Kamakura Station West Exit
You will meet your tour guide at Kamakura Station West Exit. Then together will your tour guide you will venture to Hase Station.
Kotokuin Great Buddha
The first place of the tour will be Kotokuin, which is a temple of Jodo school Buddhism located in Kamakura City, Kanagawa Prefecture. A statue of Amitabha, which is widely known by many as “the Buddhist statue of Kamakura,” is enshrined here. Unlike many of the Buddhist statues in Nara Prefecture, the statue here is not housed in a building, but stands amidst the natural surrounding allowing visitors to enjoy the view of the statue with the background that varies by season. The main characteristic of this statue, is that you can get inside the hollow space inside its body which is referred to as the womb of Buddha.
Hasedera Temple
The next place of the tour will take you to Hasedera Temple. Among many other temples around Japan named “Hase-dera,” we are introducing to you the one in Kamakura. It particularly attracts many female tourists for the adorable Jizo Buddhist statues on the temple site. The temple is also known for the hydrangea flowers blooming on its site. Enjoy the view and find your inner zen.
Kamakura Station - End of Tour
The conclusion of the tour will take you back to Kamakura station. If you enjoy going to the beach, Kamakura is a short walk to the sea. Feel free to check it out if you have time!
