Traditional sweets in Kamakura
Kamakura became the political center of Japan, when Minamoto Yoritomo chose the city for his new government, Kamakura Shogunate in 1192.
The Great Buddha of Kamakura is a bronze statue of Amitābha Buddha located at the Kōtoku-in Temple in Kamakura and dates from 1252. The bronze statue has survived over 700 years from wars, tsunamis and earthquakes, however the hall was destroyed by storms many times and it has stood in the open air. It is approximately 13.35 meters tall and weighs 93 tons. The statue is so hollow that you can enter inside. Honestly saying, there is nothing to see, just empty!
Gengorou Chikara-mochi, rice cake with yomogi (Artemisia princeps) topped with sweetened red bean paste. The shop established in 1690 and stood around Goryo Shrine.
Why don't you call at the shop when you visit Daibutsu in Kamakura?
