  • There are a number of hiking trails in Kamakura, but this time from Kita-Kamakura station to Kamakura station about 20 people walking has. There is a short distance of the large bumps on the slope and trekking shoes are recommended. I walk slowly, resting place is in the Middle, so anyone can walk. Prospect of Kamakura city and Mt.
