What to Expect
Kamakura is surrounded by small mountains, which protected this first Samurai government against enemies. Zeniarai-Benten shrine is in a cave in this mountain area. Among Japanese, it is famous for its washing money ritual. But it is located in some 30 minutes walk from Kamakura station, so it is difficult to reach without help, especially for foreigners. I will guide you to this sacred and nature-rich area through an ancient mountain pass.
Before this small hiking, I can show you Tsurugaoka-Hachiman-gu shrine and Komachi-dori shopping street. After hiking, you will get to famous Great Buddha and Hase-dera temple.
