Komachi-dori Street in Kamakura is a vibrant and charming destination. Lined with quaint shops, cafes, and boutiques, it offers a delightful shopping and dining experience. The street exudes a nostalgic ambiance, and its bustling energy is infectious. From traditional crafts to trendy fashion, Komachi-dori Street is a must-visit for exploring the local culture and finding unique treasures.

A tourist trap essentially haha, just 2 streets full of shops, selling food to souvenirs, to snacks and craft. Street feels old but the stuff sold are rather modern. From artisan gelato and financiers to burgers and ring customisation craft shops and art galleries.

Stopped by this shop with a queue - Good Luck Buddha Cake, and again, the Singaporean in me joined it. Clever marketing there, it's basically taiyaki, with 6 different fillings and they made them in the shape of the Daibutsu, the most famous landmark here. Then they assigned a wish to each filling so you are made to think hard of what you hope for when deciding which flavour to buy, I guess they were betting on the human greed where one would want it all and hence, order all 6 haha. Well didn't catch me there, I was practical with my choice and went for the one flavour that I enjoyed most and it turned out decent. The custard cream was nicely done, creamy not curdly-thick, not too sweet and balanced portion in proportion to the sponge cake. Worth the queue, which does move fairly quickly.

Delightful main shopping street that leads up to the main temple shrine area. Lots of interesting shops and eateries. Great area for strolling and browsing and of course trying new delicacies.

Closest attraction around Kamakura Station. As a huge fans of Ghibli, we were in awe to find one of its official store there. Lots of choices for food and souvenirs, can be found even in small alleys. Unfortunately due to time constrain, we didn’t get to explore much. But still recommended when visiting Kamakura.

The Kamakura Komachidori is a key shopping street leading you to the main shrine of Kamakura. There are interesting shops and eateries along the way to dive into. It may be seen as a bit of a tourist trap, but we didn't see it as such. The quality of some of the shops and their wares is good.

The shopping street has plethora of choices of restaurants , souvenirs shops and specialty shops like Ghibli store.

It is conveniently located outside of the shrine on the way back to Kamakura station.

Can easily spend an afternoon here indulging on the street food and specialty restaurants.

A fascinating street, with many traditional shops for souvenirs, local food products and local produce. A real old-time Japanese feel with many people dressing up in traditional costume (with kimono hire shops also available). Definitely worth going by this street, even just to soak up the atmosphere.
