Kamakura - Sights and Opening Hours during National Holidays

by wereldreiziger

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone could help me with the following:

My visit to Tokyo is planned during the national holiday period (staying from 2 - 6 May) and during that time I would love to visit Kamakura. There are no tours available during the holiday period and I was wondering if anyone knows if the sights (temples, shrines, etc) will be open during this period.

If so, I probably head over there myself and do some wondering around.

Hope that someone can help me out with this issue.

Thanks in advance!

Have you asked this on the forum at www.japan-guide.com?
They are locals and will probably have an answer for you.

You really don't need a guided tour for Kamakura in any case. It is less than an hours ride on the train from Tokyo.

Travel Tips for Kamakura

Go to Kamakura and see the...

by Pavlik_NL

Go to Kamakura and see the Great Buddha. The statue is the largest in it's kind and used to stand in an enormous templecomplex (made of wood, so ... a fire destroyed the whole building). The surroundings are equally intresting, with many Shinto-shrines and Buddhistic temples.

Zen Buddhist Temple.

by Sharrie

Zen Buddhist Temple: Layout of this type of temple is based on Chinese Sung Dynasty temples, ie. symmetrical & rectilinear. The main buildings comprise of Sanmon (main gate), Butsuden (hall where Buddha image is housed), Hatto (lecture hall) & the monks' quarters all in a straight line one after another.

To enter the temple, you normally have to cross a bridge over a stream or pond, symbolizing the crossing from earthly world to that of Buddha.

Zen temples are normally less colorful than their Buddhist counterpart, intending to be so to facilitate enlightenment by the emptying of mind of worldly illusions.

Japanese language.

by Sharrie

Japanese language is one of the most complicated! Three types of characters. Anyway, here's some useful phrases to keep in mind in case you need help.



IN AN EMERGENCY:Help! Tas'kete!
Stop! Tomete!
Fire! Kaji!
Call the police Keisatsu o yonde kudasai!

'Daibutsu' or 'great buddha'. A bronse statue of a sitting buddha. The statue was made in the 13th century and and rises 10 mtrs. It was placed in a temple which was completely destroyed by a tidal wave (tsunami) along with Kamakura. The statue of buddha survived an stands in open air for 6 centuries now. Nowadays the buddha is standing on an earthquake proof base.
