Kamakura Microfilm

Kamakura Microfilm

A short dive into a much-needed weekend getaway to Kamakura, a seaside Japanese city just south of Tokyo. Kamakura served as the political center of medieval Japan but today Kamakura is a prominent resort town with dozens of Buddhist Zen temples and Shinto shrines.

 

As seen in the film, Kamakura is most famous for Kotoku-in Temple’s Great Buddha, a ~50ft-high bronze statue (the tallest in Japan) which is still standing after a 15th-century tsunami.
