Where: Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, Kamakura. About a 10/15 minute walk from Kamakura station

The week-long Kamakura Festival celebrates the city and its long history, specifically the samurai society of the medieval period, around the 12th century. Think the usual parades of mikoshi (portable shrines), musical bands and an assortment of food stalls, but also a special dance performance called shizuka no mai, which is the main attraction.

You can catch this theatrical performance on the second Sunday of every April – in 2013 it’s the 14th

Meet At EBISU JR Line at 11.30am
JR Shonan-Shinjuku Line 780円 快速 Train towards Zushi
