  • Was a great experience to dive deep into Japanese culture. Highly recommend and could do some great photography.

  • Delightful main shopping street that leads up to the main temple shrine area. Lots of interesting shops and eateries. Great area for strolling and browsing and of course trying new delicacies.

  • Love this street-- if you need to take lunch or dinner you may as well walk down this street first and you can find all sorts of Japanese traditional food and of course sweets-- especially macha ice cream, etc.
  • Komachi Dori is the heart of tourist shopping in Kamakura, but should be savored slowly. Instead of quickly walking down the street and missing the magical food or product discoveries, try spending a few minutes going into each store, or reading the menu at each food establishment. After dozens of trips here, we still discover a new local tidbit to eat, or a new item in a store to ogle and consider buying. Just when we think we know the street well (and know some of the shop owners, many of whom are happy to talk), we discover something new to add to our favorites list.
