    Kanagawa Pref. Kamakurashi Komachi 2-11-19
    The home location of Toshimaya, a sweet shop which sells the classic Kamakura souvenir, the hato sablé. The hato sablé (“pigeon cookie,” named after its shape) was first made in 1897. The rich, buttery flavor has long been one of Kamakura’s go-to souvenirs. Located close to the Ni no Torii gate on Wakamiya Oji, the Toshimaya here also sells hato sablé goods found nowhere else.

    My colleague who has lived in Japan for a number of years that this is the must-visit shop in Kamakura. Its specialty is the thin bird cookies that it has been baking for decades. When I went there...

    The Komachi-dori Avenue location of this Kamakura bean and legume specialty shop. The store is overflowing with bean and legume snacks of all kinds, including tasty treats made with peanuts, soy beans, and broad beans. An abundance of free samples are also provided. The shop’s small size snack bags, easy to finish in a single sitting, make great souvenirs.

    @tripadvisor:I’m not entirely sure why Mameya is listed as a restaurant:it is NOT. It’s a souvenir shop that sells lovely bean snacks. There are several outlets in Kamakura city: one in Komachi...

    昨日、根府川店で買った「アジのひらき」がうまかったです。本日、娘親子(横浜在住)が来てその話をしたら買って帰ると言うので少し遠回りしてここに来ました。ここは近年に新しくなって綺麗でした。駐車場は30台分以上あり外出自粛の中でお客は多い方だと思いました。アネスト岩田ターンパイクを降りてすぐなので箱根の帰りに寄っていくと思います。コロナでどうかと思いましたが入れ替わりでお客は多い方だと思います。アジや...

    Kanagawa Pref. Odawarashi Honchou 1-13-17
    Located along Tokaido Road in 1-Chome, Honcho, Odawara City, this established shop “Uiro” deals in pharmaceuticals and sweets while residing in a building that looks like castle. It began in the Muromachi period, when the Uiro family immigrated from China, bringing along their family secrets in medicinal work and receiving praise for the steamed confection made of rice powder they proposed for offering to country visitors. It became known as “uiro” for the family name and spread to many areas. This genuine “uiro” from the original family has been kept for 25 generations as a tradition, with its characteristic spongy texture and gentle sweetness. The uiro museum which uses the family storehouse built in 1885 features exhibits of products in which you can sense the craftsman spirit and learn the relationship to “uiro uri” of kabuki (free entrance, guides available.) There is also a sweets shop where you can enjoy handmade Japanese confections.

    博物館入って右に併設されている喫茶室。 ここは小さいながらもなかなか雰囲気のいい店内なので行った時には必ず利用しています。 今回はこの季節ピッタリの「さくらさくら」を注文。 上層にほんのりピンクの桜ゼリー 中層に生クリームのムース 底の方には桜餡と、いろいろな食感が楽しめるなかなかの一品。 落ち着いた和風の店内でまったりと過ごすにはおすすめです。

A great number of events are held to match the season.

    This is a 15-minute walk from Enoden line’s Enoshima Station. On the road up to Enoshima Shrine, it has been picked up by various media outlets as a shop offering whole roast octopus senbei (rice crackers). The famous “whole roast octopus senbei” are rice crackers made from two-three plump press-cooked octopus. One can see the high temperature senbei press at work, and they are so popular as gourmet walking snacks that there will often be a queue of tourists lining up to get some.

    Very unique street food that is not seen in other parts of Japan, and it tastes really good - crispy and tasty! Be careful as it can crack and fall from your hand as it’s so crispy! U can also get...

    This bakery popular with locals, hidden within the backstreets, is a few minutes walk from Kamakura Station’s west exit along Onari-dori Street. The bakery is replete with slightly sour, chewy bread known for its homemade natural yeast and organic domestically-grown wheat. The most popular item is a chocolate bread full of slightly bitter chocolate.

    Great wine and the beef was sensational (the fish looked quite special also) 2500 yen for the beef set menu with salad and a small amount of baguette was good value. Highly recommend for a light...

    何度となく普通に美味しいケーキを子供達が食べるのに買ってました。にしかまプリンが有名?でちょっとクリーミーな、ねっとりしたプリンが売りです。私はカスタードプリン派なのでクリーミーなのは好き好きですね。ただ以前、焼き菓子を贈答用として買ったことがあり、その時に自宅用にも同じ物を買ったのですが、焼き菓子にカビが生えていました。多分、あまり売れていなかったか古かったのだと思い、すぐさまお店に電話しました...

    This western-style sweet shop is in Onari-cho, Kamakura City. Their signature item, Raisin-which cookies, feature butter shortbread cookies sandwiching rum raisins and butter cream. These top their selection which also includes Castella cake made with Nasuno Goyou Ran eggs, as well as cookies, madeleine cakes, and other baked treats and fresh cakes.

    This is a lovely bakery in Kamakura. Perhaps good for buying as souvenir. Decent range indeed. The raisin wich was quite joyful to go along with tea.

    A takeout sushi restaurant located close to Kita-Kamakura Station which exudes Japanese ambience. Kosen boasts a long history and Japanese master film director Yasujiro Ozu would often use the shop’s inari-zushi for bento boxes and give them out during filming. The restaurant’s specialty inari-zushi are much larger than usual and have an old-fashioned, salty-sweet flavor.

    With a long history, it is loved by the locals. Try the pack Y650 for light lunch or snack. For more refer to hiddenjapanguide.

Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
