Ancient Shogunal Seat of Kamakura

Unique Experiences in the Ancient City of Kamakura

While admiring temples and shrines filled with hydrangeas, or gazing at the sea surrounded by hills,
the ancient Shogunal seat of Kamakura still retains architecture and townscapes from the good old days everywhere you go.
Flowers and autumn leaves are enjoyed as the seasons change.
Kamakura has something to offer visitors at any time of year.
For sightseeing or strolling, with your base here at the Kamakura Prince Hotel you can set out and discover
your own unique Kamakura experience amidst the stillness of quietly flowing time.


This hiking course starts at the entrance of Jochi-ji Temple and continues for 3 kms to Kotoku-in Temple.
It is only a short trail, but there are some steep parts that can be difficult to walk, so comfortable clothes and shoes are recommended.
Along the way, side paths lead from the main hiking trail to Zeniarai Benten Shrine and Sasuke Inari Shrine.
