Kamakura Walks

Fragments of the traditional city

By Elena Lisina    - 1 min read

Kamakura is one of the most touristy places in Japan. On my first visit, I was guided to such places as Asakusa, Mt. Fuji, and Kamakura. Of course, I took the photos of the main sights, such as the temples, shrines, and statues. But, I was fascinated very much with the more simpler and common things around – trees, details, small views and fragments. Therefore, I have many photos that offer a full impression of the places.

Kamakura was the first place where I saw a traditional Japanese garden, small statues of Jizo, bamboo, huge pines, and the ocean. I immediately liked Kamakura for its comfortable size and instead of a souvenir hunt, I went to spend some time on the beach. In the middle of September, it was still rather hot and many people were sailing or swimming.

I would recommend to visit Kamakura for two days and explore it with no rush as it’s really worth to visit, especially on a warm sunny day!

I love Japan very much! I like small towns of Japan where I can watch people doing their business and talk to them carefully. They're always friendly. I like Japanese gardens where I can just sit or walk and take my time. Also I like Shinto Jinja as being there I feel in peace. I like to watch sunsets and then to dine in some small local places. I like to soak into onsen after a long day of wandering. I like Japanese crafts very much as all items are made with great taste and skill. Nihon wo daisuki desuyo! My photos from Japan I also place here: https://gurushots.com/f10384/photos Matane!
