Overview

Kamakura was the seat of the Bakufu (feudal government) from the 12th century to the 14th century. Many samurai warriors as well as commoners came and went. Kamakura is surrounded by mountains and they would walk across them. Unfortunately, with urbanization, almost all roads are now paved and widened. But you still can walk on the hill side.

Highlights

  • Kumano-Jinja shrine
  • Asahina Kiri Doshi
  • The grave of Minamoto no Yoritomo
  • Tsurugaoka Hachimangu shrine

What to Expect

You can walk an old road between Yokohama (Mutsura) and Kamakura. Along the road, I can explain about the history and background at every point of interest. This tour involves hiking, especially at the hillside. This road is actually the same as the one used in the 12th century and you may feel samurai warriors' spirits. Spring and Autumn may be the best times for this tour, but winter is still good because there are fewer people then. We can visit Kumano-Jinja shirine at the top of the hill which was established by Minamoto no Yoritomo. He was the first Shogun in the Kamakura feudal government.
