Overview of Kamakura

Kamakura City in Kanagawa Pref. is a quiet historic city with many religious structures. It is not far from Tokyo, so there are many visitors at any time of the year.

 

It was where the capital of the first feudal military shogunate, the government ruled by samurai warriors, was established in 1192.

 

The city is surrounded by mountains on three sides and the forth side faces the Pacific Ocean, so it was easy to protect from enemy attacks, which is why it was selected as a capital.
