  • If there was only one monument to see in Kamakura, it is certainly the Great Buddha that must have admired. It is visited inside but given the heat, we abstained. At the entrance is a fountain where pure water is used to wash your hands on the stones next to it. The site is very busy and is 3 or 4 stops from a small line connecting the central station (190 yen the journey which saves a lot of walking). The Kamakura-Hase station is very old, because the barriers are lowered to allow trains to pass and then pedestrians cross the track... The Buddha is about 800m from the resort.

  • Kamakura is surrounded by three sides of the rock mountain, and the south is a natural fortress facing the sea. The shogunate was opened in Kamakura by the eyes there as for Genyori morning. On the other hand, this bedrock became a barrier to coming and going with the outside. Then, it is an old road called cutting the rock mountain and cutting the road. It is the most famous cutting of the morning ina, but the great Buddha cut-in is also quite good. If you walk from the temple of Kamakura Daibutsu to the Great Buddha Tunnel a little, you can see the guide board of the hiking course. There is a separate road to the cut when going on the hiking course of the steep slope for a while as the guidance. Because it is not so long distance compared with morning ina, I can feel the history willingly by feeling a little mountain walking.
