Kamakura Buddha and Temples
Maryanne_G, Jun 2023
The first time I laid eyes on the Giant Buddha in Kamakura was the most amazing and breathtaking sight. We visited several temples and one in a bamboo forest. It was great having a guide who helped us navigate the train system from our hotel and back. Would highly recommend this trip if you have extra time while in Tokyo.

My guide Yumi was amazing. We navigated the train system no problem and had an amazing day visiting not only Kamakura but several additional shrines, including one in the bamboo forest. I highly recommend this day trip for anyone looking to get out of Tokyo for a day and see some beautiful shrines and temples.

Seeing the great Buddha bronze statue was amazing. It was a terribly busy time in Kamakura due to the new year holiday, but our guide did everything possible to get us to see all the sites he could.

Thank you for taking this tour and for posting your nice comments. As you say, cars and buses were restricted and so many people at Kamakura Hachiman Shrine for first visit of the year to a shrine. By the way, is it effective to wash money? Kono

This tour was wonderful and it was made even more enjoyable by our guide Hideaki. His friendliness and knowledge just enhanced the day. I would recommend this tour especially with Hideaki.
