"The Roundabout Way to the Buddha!" Day Trip out of Tokyo Tip by Breen

Day Trip out of Tokyo, Tokyo: 54 reviews and 144 photos

I found this more by accident than anything else. I got turned around by many local Japanease in the Kamakura area, and was told to take these background paths to find the Great Buddha, but it did give me a lot of exercise. Many other people were in this area as well also lost but you got to see many gardens and grave markings of monks while along the path and many local neighbourhoods outside the city. Good for a hike and a bit of wilderness if the big city is not your thing.

Take the train to just before the Kamakura station and get off, or at Kamakura itsself, there are plenty of paths to try!
