Kamakura Excursion Course
- If you don’t have time to visit Kyoto, but want to visit a scenic area with historic temples and shrines, Kamakura is just an hour by train south from Tokyo and makes a nice day trip (or spend several days). Surrounded on three sides by hills and bordering the Pacific Ocean, Kamakura is famous for its beaches, as well (extremely crowded during the summer). Its history dates to 1192 when Minamoto no Yoritomo became the first shogun (military general) of Japan and established his seat of power in Kamakura, far from the imperial court in Kyoto. Five Zen temples as well as temples of other Buddhist sects and several notable shrines were built during the 12th to 14th centuries. Most tourists flock to see the Daibutsu, or Great Buddha, which is Japan’s largest outdoor bronze statue. The city’s temples and museums are a little too spread out to cover comfortably on foot, but perfect for two wheels! There are also hiking trails carved into the hills. On a clear day, you can catch a glimpse of Mount Fuji from the coast.
The course described is a one day excursion from Tokyo via rinko (taking bikes on the train) to explore Kamakura. Start from Kita-Kamakura station (one stop before Kamakura and less crowded), bike through a bamboo grove to Kaizoji temple, then up a steep hill to Zeni-arai Benten shrine, where people wash their coins inside the cave to bring good fortune. Turn toward bustling Kamakura station, pick up a boxed lunch of mackerel sushi, then head east to quiet Myohonji temple. Ride southwest along a street lined with traditional shops to Hasedera (Hase temple) and the Daibutsu. Turn south toward Sagami Bay with a view of Enoshima island along Rt. 134 and find a place to relax on the beach or have a picnic. At the end of the day, ride north along a river to Fujisawa station, where you can speed back back to Tokyo by train.
