Kamakura is a very popular destination with day trippers from Tokyo. You may find various hidden spots just by ambling around here in sea breeze. In Kamakura, you should not forget about the Enoden, a retro-looking train running along the coast of Shonan. A one-day pass is recommended to fully enjoy the town and nature of Kamakura.
This area's famous delicacies are baby sardines and a variety of vegetables. There are plenty of old-established restaurants and trendy cafes. Main attractions are the Great Buddha, the second largest of its kind in Japan, and Joju-in Temple and Hasedera Temple, both of which are good places to view hydrangea in early summer. Yuigahama Beach is the perfect place to finish off you day with a beautiful sunset.

Since Kamakura is one of most popular sightseeing spot in Japan, I will not try to explain about many shrines and temples here.
Of cause, you can request me which place you want to go. But, you also can enjoy my recommends, not only some famous but also small and not so famous ones.
Strongly recommend you to visit by train due to massive traffic jam in this old town. As I mentioned in my profile, I will pick you up at the entrance of your hotel, then bring you to Kamakura by train. It's also great idea to use bicycle to go around in this small and historic town.
"Enoden" trip, which is the single track local train from Kamakura to Enoshima, will be highlight of your Kamakura visiting.
If you know, or love, SLUM DANK, which is the famous basketball comic in Japan, I can bring you to the holy place Kamakura Highschool, which is the model of "Ryonan Highschool". I know this please very well because it's my alma mater!
