Kamakura and Tokyo Bay Day Trip from Tokyo
Explore the countryside outside Tokyo on a guided day trip to Kamakura and Enoshima!
You’ll see the Great Buddha of Kamakura, and tour ancient temples and shrines such as Kotoku-in Temple and Hokoku-ji Temple. Enjoy green tea at Jomyo-ji Temple overlooking a rock garden and dine on a Japanese style lunch. You’ll learn about Japan’s long history before returning to Tokyo.
After hotel pickup in Tokyo by air-conditioned coach, your day trip begins with the 30-mile (50-km) drive south, through the capital city’s outskirts, to the city of Kamakura on Sagami Bay.
At Jomyo-ji Temple, enjoy matcha — powdered green tea — in the refined and tranquil atmosphere of a tearoom constructed over 400 years ago, and enjoy views of the Japanese rock garden. Later Visit to Hokoku-ji Temple, a renowned temple of the Rizal sect’s Kencho-ji school that features a beautiful bamboo grove. The highlight of the tour is to visit the Great Buddha of Kamakura at Kotoku-in Temple. Dating back to 1252, the monumental outdoor bronze statue is a national icon. Peer into its interior (the statue is hollow), and then step back to take a photo of the whole Buddha, which stands at a height of 43 feet (13 meters).
Then enjoy a Japanese lunch at a hotel and then head to Enoshima before the tour concludes in Tokyo.
This tour was excellent. I recommend it to everybody.
It’s worth it! The tour guide was very nice and she explained absolutely everything to us. She made sure we had enough time visiting every place and taking the photos we wanted to take. Since the beginning she explained the Japanese culture and many important things. We would definitely recommend this tour.
