The Great Buddha and Kotoku-in (Daibutsu) 鎌倉大仏と高徳院

  The Great Buddha is a representative of Kamakura.  We want Kamakura tourists to visit him.  The great statue is designated a national treasure and said as a good looking man.  It is amazing that such a big statue was built without any construction machinery.

Details about the great statue in terms of a construction is shown on Kotoku-in's web site.

Kamakura’s Hasedera Temple 鎌倉 長谷寺

  This temple is also recommendable because visitors could enjoy walking around in the large garden that was developed in a mountain.  They sell Omikuji (random fortune paper) with some English translation.  (Detail is written in Japanese but the summary in English is also shown.)

Walking

  Visiting a shrine or temple, it would be a good choice to touch nature.  You could reach both the ocean and mountains easily in Kamakura.  
  From our restaurant, you would soon find the entrance of a hiking trails just ahead of The Great Buddha.  If you go toward Hasedera temple, there is Yuigahama beach a little further on.
