I am now 10 weeks into my year long adventure in Japan. So far, Kamakura remains my favourite weekend spot. I am super lucky to live only one train ride away from this beach side. This sunday, the temp soared to 35 °C (95°F) in Tokyo. So we ditched the city and headed for the shore.
It’s getting close to peak summer season so vendors have set up temporary beach huts and bars along the sea front. Its very kitschy and cool. You can rent cabins for a full day, have spa treatments and most importantly, drink cocktails right on the sand.
The water was warmer than I had imagined so we were able to spend most on morning splashing in the waves. Heaps of surfers, board borderes and windsurfers were also out when the swell picked up in the mid afternoon.
We swam, ate and drank. I went to bed very burnt, but very happy.
