Kamakura City Kawakita Film Museum

The Kamakura City Kawakita Film Memorial was opened in April 2010 at the site of the former residence of Nagamasa Kawakita and Kashiko, who greatly contributed to the development of the film, in anticipation of the development of film culture in Kamakura. At this memorial hall, you can display movie materials, screen movies, browse movie-related materials, and search the Web. We also hold lectures, lectures and workshops throughout the year. The building is a one-story Japanese-style building that expresses the image of Sukiya-zukuri and is in harmony with the surrounding environment. The wooden fence has been restored to its former appearance, and the bright and wide opening of the exhibition room overlooks the lush garden, creating a calm atmosphere in the ancient city of Kamakura. Although it is close to Komachi-dori, which is bustling every day, it is located in a quiet environment that you can't imagine just entering the back, and you can spend a relaxing time like the ancient city of Kamakura. In addition, although the lights of the movie theater have now gone out of Kamakura City, the theater equipped with film projectors regularly screens masterpieces from the east and west, so you can enjoy the movie on a big screen. .. 《Access》 ● Get off at the East Exit of JR Kamakura Station / Enoden Kamakura Station ● Take Komachi Street toward Hachimangu and walk for 8 minutes
