Kamakura is a city in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, about 50 kilometres south-south-west of Tokyo.

Kamakura was designated as a city on November 3, 1939. As of June 1, 2012, the modern city has an estimated population of 174,412 and a population density of 4,400 inhabitants per square kilometre. The total area is 39.60 square kilometres. Kamakura has a beach which, in combination with its temples and proximity to Tokyo, makes it a popular tourist destination.
