Meditate: Gread Buddha in Kamakura

If your time in neon-filled Tokyo has left you craving a seaside escape, take a short one-hour train ride to the blissful town of Kamakura. A popular spot for surfers and hikers, the town is home to a smattering of charming ocean-view cafes and restaurants, peaceful shopping streets featuring local wares and crafts, and some of the best hiking trails near Tokyo.
Kamakura is also known for its spiritual side. Here you will find a stunning array of historic shrines and temples. The town is also famous for its Great Buddha, a monumental outdoor bronze statue of Amida Buddha on the grounds of the Kotokuin Temple. The statue, like the temple, embodies serenity.
