Brief Introduction to Kamakura Vegetables - Maybe As Delicious As Kyoto Vegetables

Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine

You may be wondering when the photos of delicious Kamakura vegetables will appear, but actually the main part of this post is a rainy day of Kamakura in March so please wait until the end of the post.

So... I'm in Kamakura. But it was raining so hard that I gave up moving around various temples and shrines to see Ume blossoms.

The only shrine I visited today was Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine.

Kamakura was full of people yesterday because the sky was perfectly clear. But today, the sky was perfectly white and I found less people.

I recorded this trunk for the first time after this big Ginkgo tree was blown down by the typhoon. It was blown down, but it is still huge.

I couldn't take photos of Ume blossoms beautifully so I shooted Kawazu-zakura instead. Raindrops were flowing along the branches and the blossoms while the white bright sky gave fresh impressions.

On the other hand, you will find a kind of darkness if you look into the shade. I favorited this pic.

And now is the time for Kamakura vegetables!

It was raining so hard that I stopped photographing. Today's late lunch was at Kanta-kun, a curry rice restaurant of Kamakura vegetables. The man on the street was energetically attracting pedestrians in such a rainy day. This is the main reason to decide to try Kamakura vegetables for the first time.

I ordered the Keema Curry Set. To tell the truth, I am not good at spicy food ridiculously. Well, I don't mean that I hate spicy food. It's just I'm not good at spicy food physically. But this curry rice was great. This was not spicy at all even for such a man of being-not-good-at-spicy-food-at-all. The vegetables on the top reminded me of Kyoto vegetables, which have a taste of high-quality ingredients.

This vegetable salad was pretty sweet.

This fried (or boiled...?) vegetables were just amazing. They are all light-flavored. They looked like having only salt and spice. I love this taste of high-quality ingredients. They are, of course, very healthy. I strongly recommend you to try the dishes here.

Official Website of Kanta-kun, only in Japanese

As the website is available only in Japanese, I will write down a brief guide to the restaurant here.

Name : Dokkiri Curry Kanta-kun

Address : 1-4-2 Yukinoshita, Kamakura, Kanagawa

  1. Go to JR Kamakura Station.
  2. Get out of the station from the east gate and go into Komachi-dori Street, a famous shopping street of Kamakura.
  3. Walk through the street for about 10 minutes.
  4. Turn left at the corner and you will find the restaurant!

This dish made me want to visit Kamakura Leaf, an agricultural legal person of this restaurant someday.
