A Day in Kamakura with Fireworks

Visiting Hachimangu Shrine, Great Buddha and Enoshima

In the summer there's many fireworks events in Japan and one of the most famous ones is in Kamakura, about one hour south of Tokyo by train. I enjoyed walking around for the whole day and visiting Hachimangu Shrine as well as the Great Buddha statue and a quick look at Enoshima Island. I set up my blue tarp on the beach early to make sure I have a space to watch the fireworks in the evening, as the beach will be full of people well before the 7 p.m. starting time of the fireworks.
