Kamakura is an easy day trip (about 40 minutes) from Tokyo. Once there, we just walked and followed the signs. Pretty easy walk, but quite a ways from the train station. DO NOT take the hiking trail if you are not in shape. Lots of hills and muddy much of the way.
The Great Buddha is very impressive are the grounds surrounding it. There are a few gift shops to get some cheap souvenirs and light snacks.
The town in Kamakura has a lot of shops and restaurants.
