Photo story: Visit to the Kamakura Yuigahama Beach

Kamakura Yuigahama Beach
Visit to the Kamakura Yuigahama Beach. This was my favourite of all photos.

When we arrived in Kamakura, it was a wet, gloomy day. It had rained a couple of hours before and the sky was full of rain clouds. So we didn’t visit the Kamakura Yuigahama Beach at the most optimal time. A quick search on Google revealed a deep blue sea and a bright blue sky, so don’t let the photos put you off from visiting the beach. In fact, our visit to the Kamakura Yuigahama Beach was very pleasant because of the picture with two umbrellas. I’m not sure who placed them together, but it made for a good shot.

How to get to the Kamakura Yuigahama Beach

En-route to the Kamakura Yuigahama Beach. It’s a 15 minute work from the JR Kamakura Station. there’s a Torii gate at the road divider, which I thought was pretty cool.

There was hardly anyone around as it just rained.

From Tokyo station, we took the JR line to the JR Kamakura Station. It took an hour to get there. From the station, it was a 15 min walk to the Kamakura Yuigahama Beach. It’s a straight road, which makes it easy navigate. The rain had just stopped and the ground was damp, but I thought the beach was still worth visiting. You can also walk back to the Kamakura Station using a different path. It’s quiet, calming and peaceful, unlike the fast-moving pace and atmosphere in Tokyo.

Despite the lack of colour, I thought the atmosphere was a charming one. With a picnic mat, I could have sat down to read a book.

Did I forget to say there were some construction work going on? :/

Cute fence – I like how the cable ties were exactly aligned with each other.

This is probably the Kamakura Seaside Park. I like how there was no one around. 

The Travelling Squid’s Take

If you need a break from the fast-paced city life in Tokyo, Kamakura is the best place to visit. It’s only an hour away by Shinkansen, and you get see the sea and walk through a calming park. A great contrast from Tokyo and in my view, worth taking a day trip to. More on Kamakura to come in a next post!
