Review: I got there on a Sunday around 5 and was told that reservations are a must, so I didn't get to eat there. The staff does not speak English, so it might be a challenge to dine there if you don't speak Japanese. Its a nice sized restaurant, and looks very organized and clean. Getting there can be a bit of a challenge. From the platform at Kita Kamakura Station, turn right and go through the small station. At the end of the street, turn left. (Reference points are a police station across the street at the streets end, and about 1/2 block down of the left is a park with stairs leading to Engakuji Temple. About another block down on the right is a stairway leading to Tokeiji Temple.) Go about 1/2 block past Tokeiji Temple and the resaurant is on the left. The Hachi part of the name is in kanji and the noki is in hiragana on the sign. I've rated this with 3 stars only because I don't know what the food is like.
