Classic mansion for sale in Kamakura, Japan


Imagine waking up to a gorgeous view from a spacious hilltop home in one of Japan’s most historic cities. 

Dream homes come in many shapes and sizes but it’s not easy to find a pre-existing home for sale that checks so many boxes for buyers in the Kanto region, in terms of location, size and amenities, as we believe this one does.

Real Estate Japan is pleased to introduce this beautiful home for sale in Kamakura, in collaboration with Azuki Partners, a Tokyo-based bilingual real estate consulting firm.

Property Overview

This magnificent home offers the best of both worlds, classic western-style architecture and an unmatched location in the sought after seaside neighborhood of Koshigoe in historic Kamakura.

Perhaps the most unique features of the property are its size and floor plan. This is a 3-story freestanding home with over 211 square meters (2,271 square feet) of living space, or more than double the size of the average house in Tokyo.

This layout would be convenient for multi-generational living or for buyers looking for rental income, as the property can be leased out as a vacation home.

Gorgeous views

The home is located on a small hill overlooking the low-rise residential neighborhoods below, which allows for wonderful views and cooling ocean breezes. You and your family or guests can also enjoy the view and changing seasons from the spacious attached paved patio and garden.

Amazing location

This home enjoys an enviable location in the ocean-side city of Kamakura, once Japan’s ancient capital, renowned for its temples, hiking trails, beaches and literary history.

For those considering this property as a vacation home or investment property for short-term rental, it is worth noting that Kamakura is also a popular tourist and day-trip destination for Tokyo residents. 

It is about a one-hour train ride from Tokyo Station to Kamakura Station on the JR Yokosuka line.

Shichirigahama Beach

On top of this, it is just an eight-minute walk from the home to Shichirigahama Beach, famous as a surfer destination and for its breathtaking views of Mt. Fuji.


This property is also located in a particularly famous neighborhood in Kamakura: Koshigoe.

Koshigoe is a historic seaside area with a shopping and restaurant street, along which the Enoden, Japan’s only standard train (not tram!) runs alongside vehicle and pedestrian traffic.

The Enoden connects Fujisawa City to Kamakura and is one of Japan’s most nostalgic train lines, often making appearances in television dramas, anime and manga.

Kamakura Kokomae Station

Of special note, is that it is just a nine-minute walk from the property to Kamakura Kokomae Station (“Kamakura High School Station”), a small seaside station on the Enoden line that has been used as a setting in many popular Japanese TV dramas and anime.
