A view of the calm sea feels great and can really start the morning right. Below are four seaside cafes in Kamakura where you can enjoy an unobstructed panoramic view of the coast. Experience the picturesque scenery that can only be expected from Kamakura that is surrounded by seas and mountains.

POST by HONEY: An open terrace where the sea breeze blows through (Wadazuka)

Boasting a beautiful vista of the beach of Shonan, POST by HONEY is a cafe and restaurant that opened just last year. Here, customers are treated to superb dishes that use vegetables and fresh seafood from the outskirts of Kamakura. It has an open design with a deck terrace that occupies half of the establishment. You can come here for breakfast starting at 8:00 am.

This is this restaurant’s bestseller, the Banana Acai Bowl (830 JPY). It is a healthy dish that has various kinds of fruits and organic apple sauce inside.

Pacific DRIVE-IN: The sun setting over Enoshima is a must-see (Shichirigahama)

This drive-in cafe by the coast is located at the center of Shichirigahama Beach Parking Area that has space for 370 vehicles. It draws in the crowd with its cozy space that fuses the surf culture of Shonan and the local culture of Hawaii.

SAIRAM Kamakura Shop: A vegan restaurant by the tranquil seashore (Hase)

Here, safe and healthy dishes that are particular about the use of naturally cultivated and organic ingredients will satisfy any vegan’s stomach and heart. The view of the ocean from the elevated terrace is most recommended during the time right after the shop opens.
