Hiking in Kamakura from Villa Kamakura

Kamakura is not only a place to enjoy the atmosphere of an ancient city, but also the mountains, which had a great influence on the formation of Kamakura, are indispensable to the city.
Kamakura offers well-maintained hiking trails.
Each course has a different flavor and takes about two to three hours, and is easily approached from Villa Kamakura, making it an easy way to take a quick walk in the forest before lunch.
