Kamakura

4.1
Ancient City
The coastal town of Kamakura sits close to Tokyo, with the ancient settlement featuring a number of important historical and cultural sites. The country's political center between the 12th and 14th centuries, the small city today wears its history proudly, with an array of well-maintained temples up in the hills and down by the coast, and many cultural institutions dedicated to the old warrior family that ruled here in the town's political heyday. Its proximity to the modern-day capital and set of pleasant beaches along the scenic coastline make visits to Kamakura a popular reprieve from the bustle of the metropolis that lies under an hour to the west.
