What you'll do

Japan is a Historic Country.
You can meet a lot of ruins when you hike in a historic place.

Once there was a capital of Samurai Warrior's government in Kamakura city around 800 years ago.
Kamakura was chosen as the capital by the first Shogun General because it is near the coast and surrounded by steep hills.
He thought it advantageous to protect from the enemies.
Therefore Kamakura is wellーknown not only for Great Buddha or old temples but also for its hiking trails which you can meet a lot of ruins.

In this experinence we'll hike on an Ancient Path that was made by carving into the rocky hills.
People of that era used it often to carry supplies from the port to the capital.
While we walk, you'll see mysterious statues and ruins in the rich nature of quiet air and clear water.
After the thrill of walking along the rock walls and water streams, we'll reach the top of the hill overlooking the capital area, and the ocean beyond it.
I'll even take you to a huge ruin of Samurai in the forest that almost nobody knows.

As a nature guide, I can assert there is no other trail like this that you can enjoy various things like an adventure!

Let's explore with me!

Eiji is a kind, helpful, and he is very passionate about doing this tour. Overall a great experience, when I come back to Tokyo will definitely sign up for his other tours.

Eiji ran an extremely well-organised event, and had prepared everything. He took to us to places and shared insights that I couldn’t have got anywhere else, certainly not by myself. He is very knowledgeable and shared a good variety of history, botany, culture and birdlore.

A beautiful hike that I wouldn't have felt brave enough to do on my own in another country I didn't know well. Eiji was exceptionally kind and let me join last minute. He gave great directions on where to meet and help on what to bring. We had a leisurely hike and Eiji shared with us his knowledge of hidden shrines and burial grounds. I especially loved learning about the plants around and sharing unique treat! Thanks so much for the great experience!!

Once-in-a-lifetime experience, the hike with Eiji completely exceeded my expectations. This is a 7-hour adventure so come prepared. Eiji takes you on a trail created just by him, I couldn't even retrace the hike if I tried. This is the mysterious side of japan you only see in the movies. I don't want to say too much because I want to keep it a secret but i've been traveling all over japan for 3 weeks now and as a nature-lover this hike was definitely one of the best experiences. Eiji is very friendly & extremely knowledgeable about every part of the hike, even which plants you can pick & turn into detox tea. Make sure you bring a backpack, jacket, and shoes you don't mind getting muddy.

A thoroughly enjoyable trip! It takes a little bit of time to get there from central Tokyo (be prepared for this as I ended up very late), but the scenery, history and workout more than made up for it.
