KAMAKURA
鎌倉

Kamakura is situated in the southeast of Kanagawa Prefecture about 45 minutes by train from Tokyo's Shinagawa Station. Overlooking Sagami Bay to the south, it is surrounded on the other three sides by a landscape of hills and valleys. The seat of Japan's shogunate government during the Kamakura Period (1185–1333), Kamakura is today dotted with temples and shrines and other historic sites and cultural assets. Among the most famous are Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu Shrine, Kencho-ji Temple, Engaku-ji Temple, Kotoku-in Temple—which houses Kamakura's famous Great Buddha statue—and Hasedera Temple. The area also has sea bathing resorts at Inamuragasaki, Yuigahama, and along the Zaimokuza coastline, and is within easy reach of the magnificent scenery on the island of Enoshima.

OISO
大磯

Oiso is a historic town that throve as a staging post on the old Tokaido road. In the late 19th century, during the early years of the Meiji government, Japan's first prime minister, Hirobumi Ito, chose the town as his residence, after which it became known throughout Japan as a favored location for the villas of prominent people from all spheres of activity. With its rich natural environment and long history, the area is home to numerous cultural sites and tourist attractions. Terugasaki beach saw the opening of Japan's first sea bathing resort in 1885, while the Shigitatsuan (Shigitatsu Hermitage) is known as one of Japan's three great haiku halls.
