This is a traditional-style Japanese house and gardens located in Kamakura’s historic Nikaido neighbourhood. It is approximately 2.3km from Kamakura Station (12 minutes by taxi).

The house is a single storey bungalow built in the 1980s. It includes a south-facing garden, a main house and an adjoining guest wing with its own living room and kitchen.

The property also includes outdoor parking for up to 8 vehicles. Six of the eight car spaces are currently rented to neighbours, providing rental income. The remaining two spaces are used by the property owner.

This is a corner block of land fronting onto two public roads on the south-east and eastern side. Although there are many narrow streets in the older parts of Kamakura, the two roads are comfortably wide for easy access.

About Kamakura:

Located between the mountains and sea, Kamakura is an ancient city located 50 km south of Tokyo.

The Kamakura Period (1185 – 1333) saw the rise of the samurai caste and the establishment of feudalism in Japan. The main setting of this important part of Japan’s history was centred just 500 meters away from this property, in an area where Minamoto no Yoritomo built his mansion and held his government offices.

Unlike some of the more urban cities in Japan, Kamakura has retained much of its traditional character. The city is characterised by its traditional streetscapes, numerous temples and shrines, and lush mountainside. In fact, 40% of the city is forest and greenery.

The beachside city rose to prominence as a resort area in the late 1800s. It was a popular holiday destination for foreigners living in Yokohama’s foreigner settlement. After the opening of the Yokosuka Train Line in 1889, many wealthy Japanese nobles began to build expansive and luxurious western and traditional-style holiday villas in the area. Unfortunately many of the original villas were destroyed in the 1923 Kanto earthquake, although a small number still survive today.

The resident population of Kamakura was 173,000 in 2015. In 2013, the city had 23 million visitors.

Kamakura is approximately an hour by train from Shibuya, and 26 minutes from Yokohama Station.
