What You Can Expect

Kamakura and Tokyo Bay Day Trip from Tokyo

Yokohama Bay

Take a break from fast-paced Tokyo as you journey back in time to the serene temples, shrines and gardens of Kamakura on this 8- to 9.5-hour day trip.

Begin your excursion with a pickup from Shinjuku Keio Plaza Hotel or the Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal. Then head out by coach for a 30-mile (50-km) ride south to the city Kamakura, situated on Japan’s Sagami Bay. Start your Kamakura visit at Jomyo-ji Temple, enjoy matcha — powdered green tea — amid the refined and tranquil ambiance of a 400-year-old tearoom that looks out over a Japanese rock garden.

Later visit Hokoku-ji Temple, a renowned temple whose highlight is its beautiful bamboo grove, and then the city’s famous Great Buddha, located at the complex of Kotoku-in Temple. This renowned bronze statue, dating to 1252, is considered a national icon. Peek inside the statue’s hollow interior, then gaze at the entirely of the figure, which towers over 43 feet (13 meters) high.

Enjoy a Japanese style lunch and then head to Enoshima. Enoshima is a small island featuring some of the closest sandy beaches to Tokyo and it's a popular destination for locals. The tour concludes in Tokyo.

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.

This was an excellent tour, I loved everything we saw and we were very fortunate to have great views of Mount Fuji. Kamakura was an amazing site and exceeded my expectations. It was nice to have the tea ceremony experience and the last temple we visited was excellent. Overall a great day and a very nice lunch provided. I would really recommend this tour!
