Welcome to Nishii-showten!
My Profile

Kamakura is a well-known seaside resort town about 50 km south of Tokyo and is home to many Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples.
Although Kamakura was the political center of Japan when the samurai class came to power, today the tranquil town tourists interested in exploring the spirituality and architecture of ancient temples and shrines.
Housed at the Kotoku-in Temple(高徳院), the town’s most well-known attraction is The Great Buddha.
Kamakura Great Buddha at a height of more than 13 meters, the statue attracts many visitors.
With an impressive approach of 1.8 kilometers, the Tsurgaoka-Hachimangu Shrine(鶴岡八幡宮) is regarded as the most important shrine in Kamakura, which has grown around the site.

Home to two museums the shrine is also known for
yabusame (“流鏑馬”,horseback archery)
and
kyudo (“弓道”,Japanese archery),
as well as numerous festivals Kamakura is surrounded by mountains on three sides and faces the ocean to the south.

This makes the town an ideal place for hiking the tree-covered mountains, as well as swimming and surfing
Steeped in tradition and only an hour away from central Tokyo, Kamakura is also a great place to sample traditional Japanese CUisine, with many excellent restaurants serving fresh and delicious food.

My traveling to Kamakura

I recorded a note of my traveling to Kamakura.
In case Fall of 2017.

My aim is “Big Buddha” and autumn leaves.

Move with Enoden

Speaking of Kamakura,
“Tsuruga-oka Hachiman-gu”
is famous.

Also one,
“Kamakura Great Buddha”.

Certainly, there is a memory like what was listed in textbooks around elementary school in Japan.

First move to the nearest station by Enoden.
It was crowded because it was a weekend.

Get off at Hase st.(“長谷”)

Got off.

While walking towards the Great Buddha, I took a walk around Kamakura Road.

While walking towards the Great Buddha, I took a walk around Kamakura Road.

On the way, we took coffee break.

Here is a cafe in a calm atmosphere where you can drink and take out.
Families with strollers were also quite successful.

Whether latte was about 500 yen, it is tasty.

The store is a bit behind the alley.
It might not be possible to reach it only when you are looking at a big street.



Arrived to the Big Buddha

Well, finally, I came to the place of Big Buddha.

We got it the colored leaves.

It was a season when the autumn leaves were beautifully colored.

Well, we approached the Great Buddha.

Commemorative photo shoot with our iPhone.
We also see a wide back.

Sorry, I can not find the photo,
I also came into the Big Buddha.
Was it per person 30 yen, it is cheap.

I have queued, but I think I can put it in as soon as it is spinning and turning.
The inside is dim, only the light from the back window enters.
And because of the enthusiasm of tourists, I steamed a little.

Come if you have the chance.
