A popular day trip destination to escape the hustle and bustle of Tokyo is the coastal town of Kamakura. Also known as the Kyoto of Eastern Japan, in the late 12th century it used to be the political center of Japan.
Since our travel plans are currently on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic, we decided to take you on a virtual day trip to Kamakura, using footage taken on previous trips.

Home Delivery by japan-guide.com is a series of articles on Japanese culture, life and travel for all of us who are currently staying home to flatten the curve. Many travel plans, including our own, have been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. While we aren't able to share new content from the road, we hope this collection from our travel archive helps you explore a bit of Japan from your own home.
