Guesthouse“Kamejikan” is located in old Kamakura area and only 250 meters away from the sandy beach where you would enjoy a nice morning walk and beautiful sunset, as well as surfing and swimming in the summer.
The 88 years old wooden house originally built as a residence for a wealthy family renovated into a guesthouse in 2011.
The carpenter was specialized in temples and shrines which reflects throughout the building with similar characteristics including a large shrine inside.
“Kamejikan” means “turtle time” in Japanese. The name was given in hopes that the guests would spend relaxing time here and remember the slow flow of time in the old days. You would enjoy staying at the traditional Japanese wooden architecture in the quiet neighborhood in Kamakura surrounded by some old temples away from the tourist area.
