Kamakura (Kamakura-shi 镰仓 市?) Is a city located in Kanagawa, Japan, about 50 km southwest of Tokyo. The cities are connected by the Yokosuka line passing through the city of Yokosuka. Kamakura is a city that is surrounded by mountains in three directions and the Sagami Bay in the fourth, this area turned into a natural stronghold Kamakura. During the Heian period was the principal city of the Kanto region. Between 1185 and 1333, the shogun Minamoto clan ruled Japan from Kamakura in the period known as the Kamakura shogunate, which was also the first government of the Shogun in Japanese history. The design of the city is due largely to the shogun Minamoto Yoritomo. The city of Kamakura is famous for its temples and shrines. Kotokuin Temple is one of the most famous for the Daibutsu, a bronze statue of 13.41 m and weight 93 tonnes of the Buddha Amitabha.
