Kamakura, Yokohama and Tokyo Bay Day Trip from Tokyo
Here, visit the Great Buddha of Kamakura at Kotoku-in Temple. Dating back to 1252, the monumental outdoor bronze statue is a national icon. Peer into its interior (the statue is hollow), and then step back to take a photo of the whole Buddha, which stands at a height of 43 feet (13 meters).
Continue to Hasedera Temple, renowned for its ancient wooden statue of a Buddhist figure, one of the largest in Japan. The 1,200-year-old traditional temple is surrounded by hydrangea gardens dotted with statues, and boasts views over the bay.
Next, enjoy a Japanese lunch, and then visit the traditional Japanese-style Sankeien Garden in the city of Yokohama, about a 45-minute drive north, back toward Tokyo. While walking around the gardens, see a range of historic buildings relocated here from all over Japan, and admire the ornamental ponds, pagodas and landscaped gardens of azaleas, maples and ginkgo trees.
On your way back to Tokyo, drive over Tokyo Bay via the Yokohama Bay Bridge; your tour then ends with your choice of drop-off in the commercial district of Ginza or Shinjuku.

This was a good day trip, the Budha visit was very good with a mix of information and free time. My family and I enjoyed the visit to the Sankeien Garden that was very nice mix of nature and the old way of life in Japan's history. We had a good amount of free time there. Just a shame the weather was so awful, bitterly cold and wet. We were able to leave the tour at the electric City area which meant we could do extra in the day, an added bonus. Our tour guide was very nice and very entertaining. Overall a very positive experience despite the weather doing its worst.
