KAMAKURA hiking trail & Zen Meditation

Hiking trail and learning Zen meditation *THIS TOUR IS FOR 12 YEARS OLD AND OVER

Service Description

A one-hour local train ride will take you to the historic city of Kamakura. Visit Kamakura's landmark, the Great Buddha. Then, we'll take a short hiking trail into the mountains, which was used to work as a barrier by the military government in the city in medieval times. In the afternoon, we will experience Zazen or Zen meditation, at Japan's first and most important Zen temple in Kamakura, which was built in the mid-13th century. We'll walk down to the city centre, first popping into the city's most important samurai shrine, then looking at a series of tiny shops in the little shopping street before returning to your next destination. <ITINERARY> Meet at JR KAMAKURA Station, WEST exit ↓ Train ride to HASE area in KAMAKURA ↓ KAMAKURA GREAT BUDDHA ↓ Hiking trail(about 70 minutes) ↓ JOCHIJI TEMPLE ↓ ZEN MEDITATION at KENCHOJI TEMPLE ↓ Walk down to the centre of KAMAKURA ↓ The tour ends at JR KAMAKURA Station -------------------------------------------------------------- -Every Friday, 9:50-18:00 -Meet at JR KAMAKURA Station, WEST exit -------------------------------------------------------------- *THIS TOUR IS FOR 12 YEARS OLD AND ABOVE. * THE HIKING PART WILL BE REPLACED WITH A WALKING TOUR VISITING OTHER PARTS OF KAMAKURA IN CASE OF BAD WEATHER CONDITIONS. *THE TOUR WILL BE CANCELLED WHEN THE ZEN MEDITATION SESSION DOES NOT TAKE PLACE DUE TO AN UNAVOIDABLE CIRCUMSTANCE AT THE TEMPLE -------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------- -Price: 22,000 yen per adult *Included: Admission to the temples, First aid kit for primary treatment, guiding fee *Not included: Meals & drinks, accommodation, insurance -------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------- -Up to 4 people (MINUMUM 2 people) -Private tour (Only your group) -------------------------------------------------------------- <CANCELLATION POLICY> -FREE CANCELLATION ... 72 hours before the meeting time -NO REFUND ...
