Right outside the "Shrine exit" of JR Kamakura station, this shopping street leads to one of the city landmark - Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine. The shops, mainly small shops, lining the two sides of the street sell a wide variety of Japanese souvenirs, clothes, and above all, food (mainly snack). Among them, many are fusion of Japanese and western food. It... More

Kamakura rarely disappoints me. I have been to Kamakura for 3 times over the past three years. Each time when I visit Tokyo, I usually spend one day in Kamakura - the city where Minamoto no Yoritomo, the first Japanese Shogun, built in the 11th century. As Yoritomo was grew up in the ancient Kyoto until his teenage years, so... More

One shouldn't miss out on visiting Komachidori in Kamakura, especially on the way to visit the Tsueugaoka Hachimangu shrine. There are lots of shops selling a variety of food from biscuits to ice-creams to sushi. I especially like the small sardines rice bowl (shirashi don) and Dai tamagoyaki (square egg).

It was very nice experience to walk through this street- great little shops with traditional Japanese goods. Everything is so beautiful and well made that it is difficult to stop yourself from wanting or buying those things. There is also a very great ice-cream shop in this street: they are specialised in ice-cream made out of green tea. You can... More

On our last day of sightseeing, we took a train from Tokyo to Kamakura. It was packed with tourists and locals. When we exited the station, we were supposed to go directly to the Great Buddha. It would be another short train ride to the local station- Hase. We followed the crowd, thinking that they would go to the station.... More

I was here 2 years ago and I think the whole area has gone upmarket since then. There are more varied and interesting shops: good quality and good value. The area nearest the station is more touristy, with more tacky tourist merchandise. The farther you get from the station and nearer the Hachimangu Shrine you get, the better the quality,... More

Such a lively street bursting with people and lovely snack food. I love the sesame ice cream and also the mochi and rice crackers that come in a variety of flavor.

Very narrow busy streets lined with small specialty shops. There is a little bit of everything: ceramics, tenugui (beautiful cotton hand towels), snacks foods, cosmetics, a Studio Ghibli store - and on and on and on. Very convenient on one's way to visit a number of temples. Worth stopping by for the unique atmosphere. The town itself is also quite... More
