Kamakura is an attractive place for one day trip. If you have already visited there and you'd like to see another scene, this tour is one of a good choice. And if you like going on hiking, this tour might add good memory to you.

Former Shogun chose Kamakura as the base of his government because it was good place for defense. You can experience this geographic reason by joining this tour.

What to Expect

It's an unusual approach to Kamakura. Although the common route to visit Kamakura is taking JR Yokosuka line and getting off at Kita-Kamakura station or Kamakura station, this is a route with approaching form Kamakura-yama Mountain. Kamakura is surrounded by mountains on its three sides--the east, north, and west--except the south facing the sea. You can feel such a Kamakura's geographical features by joining this tour. You will find fascinating Kamakura from another viewpoint.
