Harbor Terrace – Restaurant
You may have been to places close to the Kamakura station in Kanagawa prefecture while you are traveling in Tokyo but today, I would like to introduce a restaurant that is a bit far from the Kamakura station. The restaurant is inside the hotel called Harbor Terrace where you can enjoy oceanfront stay in the Kamakura/Zushi area. You can get to this hotel by public transportation. It is about 10 minutes by bus from the Kamakura station. Once you arrive at the Kamakura station, you can take #40 or #41 Keikyu bus from there and get off at the bus stop called “Iijima.” From there, it is about a two-minute walk to the hotel.
You can feel the sea breeze while walking to the hotel. The best part of this resutaurant is that you can enjoy amazing ocean view while enjoying the meal. We went to this restaurant on a sunny day so we saw a lot of people enjoying surfing and sailing at the Kamakura Zaimokuza Beach.
We had a French lunch course (Kotsubo course) which uses local ingredients such as Kamakura vegitables.
After the lunch at Harbor Terrace, we went to the Hiroyama Park which was not too far from the resutaurant. You can take the same bus from the Iijima bus stop to get to the Hiroyama Iriguchi bus stop which is about a 10-minute ride. Once you get off the bus, you will have to walk for another 10 minutes or so to get to the park. You have to climb up the hill so I recommend driving or taking a taxi to get to the park if that could be your option. If it is a clear day, you may be able to see Mt. Fuji from the park.
