A Different Side Of Japan Each Month!

January 2022

New Year's in Kamakura

Located just south of Tokyo, Kanagawa is small but beautiful prefecture that is renowned for providing the perfect weekend escape for Tokyoites, particularly those looking to retreat into nature or reconnect with tradition. From the spa town of Hakone, to the Great Buddha of Kamakura, Kanagawa has a history that stretches back thousands of years.

This month, we are immensely proud to have partnered with the Kanagawa Prefectural Government to bring you sweet and savory snacks only available in this prefecture, located just south of Tokyo. Working with them has given us access to incredible local makers and we can’t wait to share the flavors of this beautiful region with you.

Dive into the culinary delights, history, and sites of Kanagawa with Sakuraco and celebrate the most important holiday in Japanese culture: New Year's.
