Get a taste for the beautiful landscapes and serene religious monuments outside Tokyo as you visit the city of Kamakura and Enoshima on this guided day trip. Visit Kotoku-in Temple featuring the Great Buddha and Hokoku-ji Temple. Enjoy green tea at Jomyo-ji Temple overlooking a rock garden and dine on a Japanese style lunch. You’ll learn about Japan’s long history before returning to Tokyo. Round-trip coach transport from selected hotels is included.
What to Expect
Take a break from fast-paced Tokyo as you journey back in time to the serene temples, shrines and gardens of Kamakura on this 8- to 9.5-hour day trip.
Begin your excursion with a pickup from Shinjuku Keio Plaza Hotel or the Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal. Then head out by coach for a 30-mile (50-km) ride south to the city Kamakura, situated on Japan’s Sagami Bay. Start your Kamakura visit at Jomyo-ji Temple, enjoy matcha — powdered green tea — amid the refined and tranquil ambiance of a 400-year-old tearoom that looks out over a Japanese rock garden.
Later visit Hokoku-ji Temple, a renowned temple whose highlight is its beautiful bamboo grove, and then the city’s famous Great Buddha, located at the complex of Kotoku-in Temple. This renowned bronze statue, dating to 1252, is considered a national icon. Peek inside the statue’s hollow interior, then gaze at the entirely of the figure, which towers over 43 feet (13 meters) high.
Enjoy a Japanese style lunch and then head to Enoshima. Enoshima is a small island featuring some of the closest sandy beaches to Tokyo and it's a popular destination for locals. The tour concludes in Tokyo.

Beautiful, cheap, easy to get there. I wished I could be there again. It will cost around 2000 tens from Tokio to there and the City is absolutely beautifull. Go there and you will enjoy.

The meeting points are easy to find, if you use google maps it will direct you using the metro system in Japan.
