Kamakura & Enoshima Island : Day Trip

Kamakura in Kanagawa Prefecture is a well-known ancient samurai capital. It’s also the first samurai regime’s birthplace. This regime, the Kamakura Shogunate, created its own very distinctive culture during the eponymous Kamakura Period (1185-1333).

A day in Kamakura & Enoshima

This morning, your private tour guide will be waiting for you at your hotel. You will go together to Kamakura by private car, taking about one hour.

Visiting Hase-dera Temple, you are sure to be impressed by the Daibutsu, or the “Big Buddha” of 13.35m in height. Your exploration of the area will continue with Zeniarai Benten Shrine, Tsuruoka-hachimangu Shrine, Kencho-ji Temple, Sugimoto Temple, and more.

You will get a hands-on experience in the art of Japanese pottery and make a stylish piece of your own, giving you a concrete – or, rather, clay – memento of your trip. We will send your ceramic creation to your home once it has been fired in the pottery studio’s ovens. 

After cleaning up, we’ll still have time to explore the quaint, nearby island of Enoshima.
