「Kamakura x Kimono」Things to Notice

Kamakura is close to Tokyo and has many sightseeing spots, which is also a place recommended for weekend day trips. Kamakura has become a stage for various manga and movies, there are photogenic stylish spots and various tourist attractions that can not count on historical sites. Perhaps, if you go to Kamakura you can not go around leisurely in one day! But there are many with easy access and convenient enough even when you wear kimonos or yukata! So do not worry about fatigue of feet ~
Kamakura has such many sightseeing spots, but especially if you are going to Kamakura trip this time, please take a look to Kimono rental Wargo staff recommendation! \ (^ O ^) /

[Place no 1] Enoshima Electric Railway

Have you ever heard of the name “Enoden”?
Enoden is one of the means of travel for many people who wish to do full-fledged Kamakura sightseeing which connects Kamakura, Enoshima and its surrounding spots from Fujisawa station. And that ‘s an example of a pot brought to you by traveling with Enoden: Kamakura Koukou Eki Mae station!
This place has been appearing in the ending song of animation “SLAMDUNK” which became booming domestically and abroad for quite a while. It is attracting the most attention as an anime fan’s holy place pilgrimage place. Enoshima railway which exceeded 100 years or more, the appearance of the station building and the train itself is retro and the atmosphere at the station can be enjoyed sufficiently. And, after all, Enoden’s photogenic attraction is the blue sea which can be seen from inside the car running along the coast!
As this spot chooses the pre-shooting of a couple getting married, it will be evidence of photogenic appeal, so why do not you try going there once.
Wearing kimono, of course, will double this charm.

[Place no 2] Houkokuji Temple
