Kamakura was the capital of Japan from 1185 to 1333, as the seat of the Kamakura Shogunate, and became the nation’s most populous settlement from 1200 to 1300 during the Kamakura period. This city, 47 minutes away from Tokyo by train, is a popular domestic tourist destination in Japan. It is a coastal city with a high number of seasonal festivals, as well as ancient Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines.
We had visited here only briefly in 1982.
We seemed to arrive in Kamakura in no time at all, as we caught each other up on our lives since we had last met.
Enoshima Electric Railway is a private 10 km narrow gauge railway operating since 1900. It has 15 stations and winds its way through Kamakura. As a tourist attraction, it was packed on this day.
