Kamakura became the de facto seat of power in Japan when Yoritomo Minamoto established the Kamakura Bakufu in 1192 and remained so for about a century.  It is surrounded on 3 sides by mountains and the 4th by the sea, and is filled with temples, shrines and other cultural treasures.

Yoko started photographing Kamakura for the Kamakura Museum and for the bid for UNESCO World Heritage Status.  The result is a rich archive of images of a place that played an important part in Japanese history.
