In August, to enjoy the summer while many of our families are traveling, we have a very special event. On August 4th (Saturday), a small group of CI Network members will get the chance to visit Japan’s ancient samurai capital, Kamakura. CI member and CEO Kenta Homma will personally guide the group through the city sharing insights and history about this special city, which happens to be his hometown.
We will meet at the JR Shinagawa Station at noon and take the Yokosuka Line Green Car down to Kita-Kamakura Station. It is less than an hour away. Participants can buy an obento box or sandwiches at Shinagawa Station, and eat them in the Green Car if they wish (no lunch plans in Kamakura). We will visit a few major temples and the main shrine, and briefly shop around the Komachi district. Following our trek, dinner will be served at a nice Chinese restaurant (Kaseiro, linked here), where we can enjoy dinner and drinks to cap off an enlightening day of Japanese culture and history.
