Once an important political center, Kamakura is sometimes nicknamed the ‘Kyoto of Eastern Japan’ for its centuries-old Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, old wooden homes, and historical monuments. Bordering the coast and surrounded by rolling forest landscapes, Kamakura’s natural scenery serves as a dramatic backdrop for these beautiful religious sites. In addition to touring the town’s historic attractions, its hills offer a number of lovely hiking trails. The town is particularly popular during the summer months, attracting crowds with its sandy beaches and relaxed atmosphere. Located less than an hour south of Tokyo, it’s an easy and rewarding day trip from the capital.

In and around Shikoza, on clear winter days, Fuji-san is massive and completely visible. But in summer, when the the air is thick and humid, just like majic, Fuji-san completely disappears. I've been to Shizoka, and experienced days when I can see with my own eyes, just how magnificient Fuji-san is but then ...just like majic, she disappears from sight. I can not see her at all. It is truly astounding.
