Overview
See the best of Kamakura and Enoshima Island in a day on this action-packed tour. Take the stress out of navigating by having a guide to accompany you between Kamakura highlights. See the Great Buddha of Kamakura that’s nearly 800 years old, the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shinto shrine, and enjoy free time to shop and eat at Komachi Dori Street. You’ll also visit an island that’s known for its natural beauty—Enoshima Island, where you’ll have plenty of time to explore its sights independently, such as the anime lover’s paradise—Kamakura Koko Mae.
