Yuigahama Shopping Street and Beach in Kamakura

It’s summer time and beaches are whispering (no, actually singing the siren song) to everyone: come and stay!

Yuigahama StreetWhen you come to Kamakura there are many great places to visit. You can take the Enoden Line to get there.

The atmosphere of Kamakura is very relaxing. You will hear the seagulls and smell the sea as you lazily approach the beach. That said, it is much better to rely on Google maps to get to Yuigahama beach. Or at least on the road signs. Sometimes they are located near cute little Jizo Bosatsu statues. This is the beginning of Yuigahama Shopping Street.
