Kamakura Old Pottery Museum

Museums & Attractions


On the narrow road next to the railway tracks is the Kamakura Old Pottery Museum, housed in a pleasant compound of old and reconstructed half-timbered buildings. Across the tracks is Tokei-ji, for a long time a nunnery that offered asylum to women seeking refuge from abusive husbands. It’s worth a visit for its lovely garden and grounds, as well as the treasure house (10am-3pm Tue-Sun, ¥300), which keeps old sutras and scrolls.
