Daibutsu Hiking Trail, Kamakura

Enjoy nature while visiting several shrines and temples

By Adeline Ong    - 1 min read

The Daibutsu Hiking Trail is a fun and active way to visit various shrines and temples in Kamakura if you want to avoid the busy city streets and crowds of tourists. The trail through the wooded hills of Kamakura can be accessed about 350m from Kotoku-in Temple (Daibutsu) on one end or at Jochi-ji Temple at the other end. The hike was well marked and cleared and was relatively easy with some sections that are a bit more steep and challenging. Some reviews say the hike can be completed in 60-90 minutes but can take longer if you are exploring.
