Service Description

Starting at 10am, the tour leaves the meeting point by the East Exit of Kamakura Station and heads for Tsurugaoka Hachimangu, built in the 12th century by the first shogun, Minamoto Yoritomo. Various sites on the sprawling grounds are visited, such as Taiko-bashi, the Genpei ponds, and Maiden Prayer Hall, after which tour guests climb some 60 stone steps to the Main Shrine. All the while, Peter recounts the tumultuous history of the Kamakura Shogunate which ruled Japan from 1185 to 1333. From the shrine, the tour wanders down Komachi-dori, a pedestrian street lined on both sides with shops and stalls, each one overflowing with its own colorful display, the whole lively scene offering fascinating glimpses of present-day Japanese culture.
