Cherry Blossom Forecast 2014
 
Kamakura Report - April 4, 2014

Below is a list of some of Kamakura's most popular spots for cherry blossom viewing (hanami), including the typical timing for best viewing in the average year and japan-guide.com ratings. See also our nationwide list of famous cherry blossom spots.

Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine Early April
The cherry tree lined approach starts a short walk northeast of Kamakura Station
Admission: Free
Known as Dankazura, the final approach to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine is lined and covered for almost 500 meters by hundreds of cherry trees, creating one of Japan's most spectacular cherry blossom tunnels.

Genjiyama Park Early April
Halfway along the Daibutsu hiking trail, that connects the Great Buddha with Kitakamakura. Or a 20-30 minute walk northwest of Kamakura Station.
Admission: Free
This hill top park, which was the site of various historical events during the Kamakura Period and features a statue of Minamoto Yoritomo, offers several dozens of cherry trees in multiple park areas that are well suited for hanami picnics.

Kamakura Daibutsu (Great Buddha) Early April
5-10 minutes from Hase Station
Admission: 200 yen
The number of cherry trees on the grounds of Kotokuin Temple, the home of Kamakura's famous Great Buddha, is not very large. But one well placed tree to the right of the Daibutsu lets visitors beautifully combine the statue with cherry blossoms into photos.

Ratings:    best of the best    best of Japan    outstanding
