The Color Palette

Kamakura Kita-Kamakura Kanagawa Japan

Kamakura can be visited on a day trip by train from Tokyo. This is the town where the shogunate has been located since the end of the 12th century, and there are many ancient temples. Surprisingly for foreigners, many people want to live in this place and commute to a company in Tokyo. Especially the area along the sea is popular and is called“ Shonan style”, and it is a relaxing, slow but modern life. The reason for its popularity is that it always has delicious ingredients in a warm climate. And the flowers and plants are beautiful every season. Let’s go around Kamakura to meet beautiful colors.

Not only that, but the cherry blossoms in spring, the irises at the end of May, and the autumn leaves at the end of November are all wonderful. The color palette changes in the changing seasons.
