Kamakura used to be a samurai headquarters, which still has a Zen atmosphere. If you are lucky, a super view of Mt.Fuji will welcome you!
The owner of Gallery AKI in Zaimokuza, Kamakura. He says it should be pronounced as Zeimokuza. He used to run a sake shop, then changed the shop to a gallery since his daughter Momoko and himself are both artists. Momoko is a Japanese-style art painter while Aki-san is a designer of wood carvings. We came across their gallery by accident. A bird stole my lunch on Kamakura Beach, so I looked for somewhere else to have lunch. Instead of a lunch place I found the gallery, which brought my husband and I to Kamakura to live eventually! Gallery AKI has a cozy gallery café for your coffee break or light lunch. You will meet Aki-san & his wife Yumiko-san, who are the typical Shonan fashionable couple, and you can enjoy talking with them. It is just a 10-minute walk from Kamakura Station. Come and visit!
