Kamakura Festival鎌倉まつり

Event

Kamakura’s most renowned event, the Kamakura Festival has been held annually since 1959. Each year from the second to the third Sunday in April, a variety of events are held centering on Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, such as gallant horseback archery reminiscent of Kamakura’s ancient warriors and the Shizuka no Mai dance, which re-enacts the dance Shizuka Gozen performed for Minamoto no Yoritomo. Outdoor tea pavilions are also set up at Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine and Kotoku-in Temple, giving visitors the chance to enjoy the history of Kamakura together with the fresh spring air.

          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.
