At the “blacksmith,” you will have some delicious seafood bowls using halal soy sauce and tempura bowls that also are prepared using a halal sauce. There are also other menu items such as a grilled fish meal on the lunch menu. With confidence towards your faith, you can enjoy the Japanese cuisine.

After lunch, you will enjoy shopping on the Komachi street where there are souvenirs that make Kamakura unique. Then you will go to the Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine. The Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine is known widely as the guardian deity of the warrior (samurai). At the shrine of Yukari Yoritomo, you will learn about the Kamakura shogunate during Japan’s first samurai regime.

There is also a very impressive, festive display of traditional samurai known as “Yabusame (Horseback archery).” The area is said to be spiritually strong, and a large ginkgo tree that fell due to strong winds now has elongating shoots. This has gained popularity as a symbol of regeneration.

Under the guidance of your knowledgeable tour leader, enjoy your tour in the ancient capital of Kamakura.
