Kamakura Full-Day Walking Tour with Optional Rickshaw Ride from Tokyo
Explore the countryside, temples and shrines outside Tokyo on a full-day walking tour through Kamakura. This fascinating, fully guided excursion takes you to Kamakura's famous Great Buddha and pretty Hase Kannon Temple. You'll also have the option to take a one-hour rickshaw ride or train trip to visit the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine as well as shop for arts and crafts along Komachi Shopping Street.
To begin your full-day walking tour, you'll board local trains to Kamakura and Hase, a suburb within Kamakura, to visit the massive bronze statue of the Great Buddha at Kotokuin Temple. The second largest Buddha statue in Japan, the bronze image measures 37 feet (11.4 meters) and is thought to date back to 1252. You'll then visit the attractive Hase Kannon Temple, with its gilt statue of Kannon. You'll have great views of Hase and the Pacific Ocean from here.
After a Japanese-style lunch at a local restaurant, you have the option of taking an one-hour rickshaw ride or train trip on the Eno-den line to the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine (select your preference when booking).
Here, you'll take a walk along Wakamiya-Oji, the approach to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine lined with cherry trees. Features of the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine include a series of red torii gates, an arched bridge, ponds, a huge gingko tree and the colorful Main Hall standing at the top of 62 stone steps.
After walking back to Kamakura Station via Komachi Shopping Street and its art and craft shops, you'll catch a local train on the Yokosuka Line back to Tokyo.
