Product description


Exciting guide to help uncover even more to love in this wonderful city

"Now that I've had a few months with this guide, I have to say that the restaurants I've had the chance to visit so far have all been phenomenal. From traditional Japanese breakfast to high quality tempura, the content here has definitely been carefully selected, and are almost all spots I wouldn't have likely discovered on my own."

The only Kakakura guide you will ever need

"This book presents a lot of great information in a concise, easy to read format. I started reading it a few hours ago and could not put it down. I already have so many pages bookmarked; map routes to follow, restaurants to visit, and places to shop. This book really has it all! "

A labor of love produces a great guidebook

"There are very helpful maps and descriptions that could only come from people who are intimately familiar with their surroundings. If you plan on traveling to Kamakura, and I have a number of times, this guidebook will be a great companion to take along on your journey."

The perfect guide to Kamakura

"It is not your ordinary guide. The writers provide a lot of interesting history of Kamakura and the surrounding area and some really cool places to visit as well. Many of these places are off the beaten path and only known by locals. The restaurants in these book are owned by some wonderful people who care about their craft, their city, the environment, the food they make, and the people who they serve such great food to. Come visit Kamakura and let this book be your guide. Be careful because it may make you want to move here.: )"

Great guidebook of Kamakura

"I was looking for a good guide book for my friend coming to Japan and came across with this great book. I'd recommend it to all the travellers visiting Japan as it contains very useful pieces of information including history, restaurants, and places you should visit."
