5 Restaurants in Kamakura You Can Take the Whole Barkada To

Come hungry.

Kamakura is one of the best spots to explore in Japan. Located southwest of Tokyo in the Kanagawa Prefecture, it has a plethora of options for sightseeing, dining, and shopping, no matter what you and your travel buddies are into. 

In the event that you get hungry while you explore this area, here are five restaurants you and your friends can check out.

2-5-8 Koshigoe, Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture
Contact: +81-4-6766-1709

This hamburger joint differentiates itself from others as it serves burgers alongside Japanese dressings for dipping. To customize your meal, you can also choose from a selection of 15 toppings to add to your wagyu patty.

Trivia: This hamburger joint was originally a hundred-year-old house, before it was renovated into a restaurant.

1-12-16 Inamuragasaki, Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture
Open from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Yoridokuro is frequented by both locals and travelers wanting to have their fill of healthy dishes, and is known for its dried fish. Sit by the counter to have a good view of the famous Enoden (Enoshima Electric Railway) through the window while enjoying your meal.

Kamakura Waku

Kamakura Waku is new to the scene, having just opened in February of this year. With select ingredients and serving platters purchased from all over Japan and their head chef at the helm (who got his training from famous Japanese restaurants in Tokyo), expect nothing less but delicious fare and an enjoyable time.

Tamagoyaki Ozawa

If you’re wondering why this famous tamagoyaki or Japanese-rolled omelet restaurant always has a long queue, it’s because each serving of this sweet dish is made of four fresh eggsfluffy goodness in every bite. Of course, its secret broth ingredient probably has something to do with it as well.
