Kamakura is an ancient city that has produced its own, original culture. Once it was a political capital along with Nara and Kyoto, and also the birthplace of Japan's first military government, the 'Kamakura Bakufu.' Warrior Minamoto no Yoritomo was appointed as Seii-Taishogun (shogun) by the Imperial court in 1192 and established the Kamakura Bakufu government, which is the first military government in Japan, whereas previously the Imperial court in Kyotoheld power.

After Yoritomo's death, the Hojo clan governed this area. Trade with the Sung and Yuan dynasties of China prospered in the 13th century and a various aspects of Chinese culture, including Zen (Buddhism), Zen-style architecture, Buddhist statures, and Chinese lacquer ware, were imported. The Kamakura Bakufu ended in 1333. But the military culture of that era, in which the simple and strong spirit of warriors, traditional aristocratic culture, and Chinese Sung and Yuan culture were blended, has continued to greatly influence Japanese society down to the present day.

Great staff, Brilliant location, Good common area. Food places in the area tend to close quite early, there are no cooking facilities at the hostel. Close to convenience stores, Hase station, and beach.

Great location, kind and helpful staff, but very overpriced. This place has little to no security. The bedroom doors have no locks, they barely even latch closed. There are exactly 9 lockers by the front door, each the size of a shoe cubby. I had to hide my backpack in a closet to keep it safe while I slept. They leave the front door wide open the entire day, anybody can walk in.
