The Cheapest way to get to Kamakura from Tokyo

Tokyo to Kamakura Train 810 yen 70 minutes 1 Transfer
read moreThe cheapest way to get to Kamakura from Tokyo will involve taking the JR Yokosuka line from Yokohama station. HOWEVER, there is a catch: to benefit from this special pricing of 810 yen, you will need to purchase separate tickets from Tokyo to Yokohama and Yokohama to Kamakura! In other words, this will require you to exit Yokohama station before re-entering with a separate Yokohama to Kamakura ticket. If you don’t, transfer fees will apply and you will end up paying the normal tariff of 920 yen for Tokyo to Kamakura! For more information on how to get to Yokohama, you can check out our Yokohama Access page.

JR Pass & Special Deals from Tokyo to Kamakura

Japan Rail Pass

Enoshima Kamakura Free Pass
read moreAlso, if you plan to explore the Enoshima area, we recommend you consider the Enoshima Kamakura Free Pass issued by Odakyu. The free pass will not only get you a round trip from Shinjuku station to Kamakura but also unlimited access to the Enoden trains and preferential tariffs for numerous restaurants and shops in Kamakura for no more than 1,470 yen. There is the extra cost of 400 yen for the return fare from Tokyo to Shinjuku, but that still leaves you at 1,870 yen, as compared to 1,840 yen if you took the JR. In other words, for just 30 yen extra you can get free unlimited usage of the Enoden trains. The only downside to this special offer is that the trip will take you longer (about 90 minutes eachway).
