Komachidori Shopping Street @ Kamakura

Between Kamakura station and Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, there are 2 main streets, Wakamiyaoji and Komachidori which have various shops for your appetite and entertainment.  Please enjoy both streets for your round trip!  Here are some shops at Komachidori Shopping Street. The street is full of people, especially on the weekends.

Kamakura Croquettes Torigoya can serve you just fried croquettes both for eating in the shop or to go. The flavors are beef, sweet potato, chocolate and so on. The price is JPY200 per piece.


There are many shops for your souvenirs, too, such as Japanese craft, Japanese paper, chopsticks, bags, and hair accessories. Please find your favorite shops.

The shops are not only traditional Japanese ones.  Imbiss Kamakura serves you real German sausages and ham. The hot dogs look so delicious.

If you get tired, let's take a rest for a while and taste Japanese sweets. This time, I went to Oimo (meaning potato in Japanese) Cafe Canary Bird.

I chose the one which has green tea and sweet potato ice cream, sweetened chestnut, rice-flour dumplings, and sweet beans with brown sugar syrup. Very tasty! The price is about JPY800, depends on the toppings.
Kamakura has not only temples and shrines, but also fancy shops. Please have a nice time.
