Getting away from it all.
Wanting to unwind a bit, I decided to go for a hike on the weekend. I’m fortunate to live near Kita Kamakura, but even if you don’t, it’s very accessible and worth the effort.
There are multiple trails to choose from on both sides of the station, depending on your preferences: do you want a long hike or a short one? I wanted to do a longer hike, so I chose the left side and set off around midday.
The start of the hike is the hardest part, with a quick increase in elevation over a short distance. I was sweating after a few minutes and stopped for a drink when I got to the top. From there the trail goes up and down until you reach the end and is a pleasant way to spend a few hours away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
