History

As the birthplace of Japan's first government ruled by Samurai, City of Kamakura served as a root of many unique Japanese culture, along with such old city like Kyoto and Nara.

Big shifting point of government ruled by aristocrats to the one ruled by Samurai, Kamakura served as the capital of Kamakura Bakuhu "鎌倉幕府" founded by Minamoto-no-Yoritomo "源頼朝". Trade with Sung and Yuan dynasties of China brought many new cultures, such as Zen, Buddhism architecture, Buddhism statures and lacquer ware. Where simple and strong Samurai spirit resided together with aristocratic culture and Chinese influence, Kamakura period and its city still greatly affect Japanese society.

The Armor you'd wear during this tour is crafted by local members of team Mononohu, based on a study of old recording from the Kamakura period. It is made from special compressed paper for the wearer's confort and agility. You can wear it all day without feeling tired at all!
