Kamakura was the capital when the samurai ruled our country for the first time in 1192. Old temples and shrines, such as Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine, Kenchoji Temple, Enkakuji Temple, and the Great Buddha in Kamakura, attract about 20 million tourists every year. In addition, Kamakura prospered as the site of country homes for families of Zaibatsu conglomerates and cultural figures about 100 years ago. The refinement and lifestyle of the people who lived here were the subjects of admiration from people all over Japan.
Kamakura Carnival, a good combination of the Japanese style and the Western atmosphere, was the first Western-style parade in Japan. The first-of-its-kind Kamakura Beauty Pageant, with the additional purpose of auditioning for movie-actresses for movies, was held at the same time as the Kamakura Carnival. We provide the kimonos for auditions and awards ceremonies of the ongoing ‘Miss Kamakura Carnival’ as an official sponsor.
