Japan is a Historic Country. You can meet a lot of ruins when you hike in a historical 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, 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! (^o^)/
