This is a really fun little hike and a great activity to do in Kamakura. We really enjoyed it. When we went it wasn’t crowded.

I used to live very close to this trail and would walk it 3-5 times a week with my young daughter. It may require some agility and steep climbing, but not too much. At one end is the "Harakiri" deru, a place, a cave, where...More

After visiting the shrine we decided to take a hiking trail the way back. We got lost, but our GPS helped. It is not a difficult hike. the first part is by far the hardest.

I suppose so, if you want to rush and not see anything else. Daibutsu (the Big Buddha) is up a hill, inland, about a kilometer. A tsunami in the 12th century(?) is said to have moved it....Enjoy! Make more time if you can!
