The main street “Komachi-dori” is the pride of Kamakura, with the atmosphere of Kamakura in the 1960s.

It runs from the east exit of Kamakura Station to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine and is about 360 meters long.

By train, it takes about 60 minutes from JR Shinjuku Station or Shonan Shinjuku Line, and it is a short walk from Kamakura Station, so access is good.

The quaint appearance that Komachi-dori gives off not only gives off a nostalgic feeling, but is also suitable for photography.
