Tour and Gala Dinner

 


We have planned a guided tour of Kamakura on the afternoon of October 10th.  The Gala dinner will be held at the Kamakura Park Hotel on our way back to Shonan Village. The Kamakura Park Hotel is located on the shore of Sagami Bay. Two of most famous Japanese landscapes, Mt. Fuji and Enoshima Island, can be viewed from the hotel.

Kamakura is a beautiful seaside city in the Kanagawa Prefecture. It was the political center of medieval Japan.  Today Kamakura is a prominent resort town with dozens of Buddhist Zen temples and Shinto shrines. We will visit the Great Buddha, one of Kamakura’s most famous landmark as well as other beautiful temples and shrines. .

The cost of the guided tour, including transportation, and the Gala dinner is: 12,000 JPY
