The best street foods of Kamakura's shoping street


Komachi Dori shopping street leads you up to one of Kamakura's most famous temple grounds. It has so many good foods that you should try! Here are my suggestions. Both sweets and savoury foods are included.

Feel free to follow favy!

Kamakura Chacha

On a hot sunny day, Kamakura Chacha's famous rich matcha ice cream is the perfect treat. You can have it either soft served or regular. Quality matcha from Shizuoka Prefecture is used in their ice creams, and if you take it with a cone, it has a delicious buttery and almond taste. The ice cream is offered it either premium (strong taste of matcha that's a little bitter) or mild. Overall this is great ice cream! It even received for three years in a row the prize of the Ministry of Agriculture of Japan because of its outstanding quality. One serving is about ¥500 to ¥600.

Sakura-no Yumemiya

Another light sweet you can have on the go is a mochi ball stick at Sakura-no Yumemiya. What this shop is doing is very interesting because their giving a new twist to the traditional dango sweet. The standard dango is flavoured with a sweet and slightly salty sauce but these dango sticks come in all kinds of flavours including matcha, sakura, and several kinds of fruits. One stick is just ¥180 or less.

Kamakura Goro

This is a shop of long-standing that offers some really delicious Mont Blanc cakes. These creamy chestnut cakes are super popular in Japan so you should definitely give them a try. You can get one as a souvenir, as they come in nice boxes, or just eat them on the go. The shop also has a variety of other mostly Japanese-style sweets from about ¥200 a piece.

Hannari Inari Shokujidokoro

If you want something savoury, quite filling and healthy, this might be a good place to stop by. Hannari Inari offers some very original seafood cups with rice that you can eat on the go with a spoon. Shirasu fish is a local specialty so you might want to try the one topped with a generous amount of those little white fish! Also, the store offers some simple yet so delicious 'tamagoyaki' (Japanese style omelette) on a stick, that also has some little shirasu in it.

Kamakura Dim Sum

Towards the end of the shopping street, you'll find this really quaint dim sum shop that was featured several times on Japanese TV. Their claim to fame is their super tasty pork 'manju' steamed buns. The price for one manju is ¥380 which is a lot more expansive than most other places but you'll taste the difference! These housemade buns are made with quality ingredients and have no artificial flavouring.
