Kamakura is roughly an hour train ride outside of Tokyo via the JR rail system. There are many beautiful traditional Japanese temples surrounded by natural scenery to explore.
Go to see the Daibutsu (giant bronze Buddha) at Kamakura.
Amazing 37-foot bronze statue made in 1252. Beautiful garden surrounding statue and many temples to visit around the area.
No ugly big buildings here: just traditional houses and more temples per square kilometer than anywhere else in Japan. And the Great Buddha.
