I waked this whole trail plus the section from Kita-Kamakura to the great Buddha in a day. It was a long day as I stopped at all the sights along the way, but it was a comfortable hike and I enjoyed the beautiful shrines and...More

A good hiking trail of approximately 6 km on the hills overlooking Kamakura. You can get good vies of the town and especially of Mount Fuji on clear days. Most of the trail is in the forest and presents no particular difficulties, except maybe for...More

Use the free map of Kamakura and signs on the street to locate the trail heads. We hiked from Zuisenji to Kamakura-gu in a little over an hour. There are bathrooms mid way along the trail and (surprise) a large golf course and clubhouse complex....More

This is a really beautiful trail around the north of Kamakura. I started at Zuisen-ji and ended up on the hill above Kencho-ji with the most amazing views over the city. The trail is mostly well signposted but I got a bit lost in the...More

A great little trail (I would call it more a walking path) in Kamakura. It's very pretty in spring time, and the trail is well marked. It seems very popular with elderly and families with young kids. The trail itself is super easy, and can...More

From trail head to trail end, I think this path is less than 5 Km. Add to that walking from Kita Kamakura station and down to the bus stop after descending from the trail at Zuisenjil. The trail starts at Hansobo, above Kenchoji (where you...More

We started from Kenchoji Temple, a 15-minute from Kita-Kamakura Station, towards Zuisenji then past Tsurugaoka Hachimangu to Kamakura Station. The whole walk took around 2 hours. The trail of rocks and branches is not too difficult, some uphill but not too bad. It's pretty well...More

The trail actually starts outside the gates of Zusenji so it’s fine. But it ends at the gate of Kenchoji. I actually arrived at the Kenchoji gate after hours and there was no one there taking money, but the gates were open... More
