It's difficult for me to define Kamakura as a good place or not. Sure, I like old places like there, but I can't help but comparing Kyoto, a popular historical city in Japan. Well, no wonder anymore, just take a look :)
The fact I really like it that Kamakura is very near from Tokyo. If you want to visit Kyoto from Tokyo, it'd be better to stay at least a night there. Although you can enjoy one-day trip, but it must be tired. But Kamakura, you can make it plus stay a good night in Tokyo, eating at some restaurant and such :)
Also, this place isn't bigger and famous than Kyoto. Just walking along forests and houses makes you feel comfortable.
I visited some temples that day.
One of temples had a bamboo forest. There were some people sitting while taking green tea inside.
Wow, bad attitude :) Well, I don't hate it at all :)
When I was in Jerusalem, I found myself that I adore taking pictures of gates. I always take it whenever visiting good places regardless of countries. If the gate is beautiful, I would be excited because inside must be more beautiful, I recently found it :)
