WeBase KAMAKURA inside look!
こんにちは everyone! Let’s get an inside look at WeBase KAMAKURA shall we?
As you enter our hostel, the first thing that catches your eye is the circular shape of it, our building surrounds an inner garden that will offer you peace of mind and which also works as a great area where in to relax. Right at the beginning or before you go, don’t forget to take with you a unique memory, snatching a picture with our four own Abbey Road Buddhas! We also are fortunate to have our own guardian deity in Kenji Yanobe’s “SHIP’S CAT (harbor)”, a massive white kitten that looks out for our guests’ safety and happiness. A photo is also a must!
Our hostel is connected with Brasserie Gent at the end of the first floor’s circumference. A place where to enjoy our delicious breakfast and also the cuisine of the excellent French-based team and the quality of Norway’s own Fulgen Coffee.
In our reception, we will look after you the 24hours of the day and we work hard to create a smooth and easy check-in experience. Whether you are staying in one of our modern dormitory rooms, family rooms, double rooms, or our unique Japanese-style tatami room, you will also be able to enjoy our many other facilities and activities.
We partnered with Studio Yoggy and are proud to host Another World yoga studio among our installations. Located on the lower level of our hostel, Another World offers you daily yoga classes at special prices for our guests plus activities such as Pilates, meditation among others. Another World, with views to our inner garden, is also a space available for rent.
Next to Another World yoga studio, you will find yet another special feature of WeBase KAMAKURA and that is the Japanese style Communal Bath. With large windows giving you a private view of our meditation garden, you can enjoy a traditional Japanese experience while also getting to relax after a busy day of exploring and enjoying the city.
To make your exploring all the better we also have a bicycle rental service. Either if you want to pedal all day long or just quickly come and go, we have an option for you since we do both 4hours and 24hours plans.
While all of these features are available year-round, we also have seasonal activities and experiences. The city of Kamakura is bordered by the mountains on one side, and the ocean on the other, which makes it the perfect getaway at any time of the year and which also means plenty of exciting summer activities.
WeBase KAMAKURA is located just two minutes away from the beach, which is why we have a built-in beach access with showers and locker rooms so that you can easily come and go and enjoy the beach. Not only that, but we also rent sup boards and offer surf classes on demand. Also, remember our yoga studio? In the summer you can enjoy sunny yoga classes with our beach yoga sessions!
To make sure your friends know about all of the fun you are having, in the Lounge area downstairs, we have 24h available computers that you can use freely while also enjoying some snacks from our vending machines, and trying your luck at our “gashapon” machines!
And still, that’s not all of it. We are always looking for ways to grow and make our guests stay all the more enjoyable, so we always have some new activities for you to give a try to! Calligraphy Work Shops, Tea Ceremony and origami classes to name a few.
We hope to see you soon and be part of your Japan experience!
