The former Japanese capital of Kamakura, located some 70 minutes from Tokyo by train, will hold the annual festival at the iconic Hachimangu Shrine from September 14th to 16th.

The festival will play host to the same style of yabusame that graces Sumida Park.
The picturesque country settings of Kamakura make for fine rikshaw rides in the late-summer sun, while traditional Japanese goods and foods may be purchased in the famous Komachi dori shopping street.

Rich in religious heritage with temples galore, and close to the island bliss of Enoshima, Kamakura represents Japanese culture at its most pure.
