    Love this traditional Japanese style home. It is a very beautiful place and the building has been renovated to a great balance between traditional and comtemporary. A nice environment to think and absorb the energies of Japanese architecture. The homemade shochu is very nice and sweet, and the kind staff are even sweeter. Will be staying here every time in Kamakura.

    Kamejikan oozes character with its authentic details. The lounge is cozy enough to read a book and have a (freshly ground) coffee or (herbal) tea. The food they serve is absolutely delicious: super fresh with lots of vegetables. The staff are very welcoming and super friendly. You feel right at home. Its location close to the beach is an added bonus. Watch the surfers conquer the waves and you will never want to leave...

    Really enjoyed my stay here! The staff was super awesome and really helpful, spoke great English. Was very close to the beach and had lots of good food around. The bed wasn’t the most comfortable, and they didn’t have a dryer, so when I wanted to do laundry with rain in the forecast, I was unable to, which was a big bummer. Besides that it was a enjoyable stay.

    Good hostel, worth the stay. Masa, one of the hosts, is a wonderful and curious guy who cooks up an excellent breakfast. Know the location, it is by the beach, but a reach to the tourist sites. The place is very nice and clean, but have a couple suggestions- must have liquid soap at the was wash basins, essential for hygiene. The bicycles need an upgrade. They function, i.e., they move forward when you pedal, but use more energy than necessary; near impossible to take them up even small hills.

    The best part of staying here is the staff was very friendly and the location was excellent. If you need to get around there is a few bus lines that run right by the place. The house was quite nice and it had a very relaxed atmosphere. It was very clean but the shower area was a bit dated and could use a little work. I hope this place gets a little more TLC and stays around another hundred years.

    Kamejikan itself is adorable! Turtles everywhere and the staff were great. If your main priority is the beach, it's a 5 min walk, otherwise it is a 20min walk or bus (including waiting) to the centre of Kamakura.
