Taking a break from the city, we activated our JR passes and went to explore Kamakura, a sleepy seaside town an hour south of Tokyo. Once the political centre of medieval Japan, it has become a popular tourist destination full of shrines, temples and sandy beaches. From the train station, we wandered along Komachi-dori street, lined with boutique shops selling crafts, pottery, souvenirs and snacks, where we bought some chopsticks and tried every flavour of crunchy coated beans. We soon reached Tsurugaoka Hachimangu, a picturesque Shinto shrine with beautiful grounds and koi swimming in the ponds. Peeking into other small shrines en route, we walked to Hokokuji temple, through the winding paths of the bamboo groves to the tranquil and immaculate garden. It was further than expected to get to Yuigahama beach. Arriving starving hungry, the sign warning of hawk attacks was not so welcome, neither were the hawks themselves - we begrudgingly shoved our sad picnic of two onigiri each back into our bags and sat on the sand for a little while to make the walk seem worth it. Our final stop was Kotoku-in temple to see the second biggest Buddha in Japan. We sympathised well with the Buddha, whose bowl of fruit was even scrawnier than our rice balls (relatively speaking). The JR home was the perfect end to a great day out, such an easy and worthwhile trip if you have time to explore outside of Tokyo #greatbuddha
