  • We arrived in Kamakura by train and got off at the Kita-kamakura. Just arrived we walked to the area of the temples but one passed literally amid the machines so we decided to take the path in the Woods, without sapera what would reserved. Gradually we enter the small forest feel that civilization is walking away, no more noises and after two full days among people in Tokyo seemed to have made peace with the world huge trees, dense vegetation and rugged paths, beautiful ... at times tiring but still beautiful. The day before it had been raining so there was mud everywhere, I was with the all stars. Maybe do it with different shoes and two weather information

  • There are several hiking in Kamakura. I walked too much without a preliminary knowledge. The unexpectedly steep, stair there, and was supposed to walk the course to exhausting. It is recommended to hike well after your homework in advance.

  • Came with standard pumps had better back into hiking trails from the train station to find I come in a little bit weird, then ended up in the fine mountain in me. Also on the way narrow width of the road that was in a casual wedding with groups coming from reversed, and lots of it, so don't tell me. It was good because it is just in the autumn had come a bit early, but here in Kamakura comparatively early in the tree are also seen.
