The famed historical town of Kamakura is an easy 1-hour train ride from central Tokyo. During the 12th to 14th Centuries Kamakura was the center of political power in Japan. Throughout modern times, Kamakura has been a choice location for many intellectuals and artists and the stage of countless stage performances and novels. The only National Treasure Building in Kanagawa is in Kamakura. It is not surprising then that the quaint streets of Kamakura are reminiscent of earlier days of Japan. They must be worth capturing with your camera like an Italian tourist does in this movie.
