- Komachi-dōri Kamakura Town
Lonely Planet review for Snack Stalls
Snackers will love Komachi-dōri. Kamakura Ichibanya (22-6156; Komachi-dōri) specialises in sembei (rice crackers); watch staff grilling them in the window or buy some 100 packaged varieties including curry, garlic, mentaiko (spicy cod roe) or uni (sea urchin).
Imo no Kichikan (25-6038) is famous for soft-serve sweet-potato ice cream (look for the giant plastic cone with lavender-hued ice cream), while Toshimaya (25-0505) sells Kamakura's omiyage (souvenir) of record, hato sabure, large butter cookies in the shape of a dove (¥84 each or from ¥451 for five). For picnic foods for hiking or beaching, Kinokuniya (25-1911; ;09:30-20:00) is a ritzy supermarket out Kamakura station's west exit, with freshly made sushi, deli specialties and baked goods.
