KAMAKURA hiking trail & Zen Meditation

Hiking trail and learning Zen meditation *AGE RESTRICTION APPLIES

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 having a look at a series of tiny shops in the little shopping street before going back to Tokyo. <ITINERARY> Meet at YOUR HOTEL in TOKYO ↓ Train ride to HASE area in KAMAKURA ↓ KAMAKURA GREAT BUDDHA ↓ Hiking trail ↓ JOCHIJI TEMPLE ↓ ZEN MEDITATION at KENCHOJI TEMPLE ↓ Walk down to the centre of KAMAKURA ↓ Train back to YOUR HOTEL in TOKYO (The tour ends in TOKYO) -------------------------------------------------------------- -Every Friday, 8:30-19:30 -Meet at your hotel -------------------------------------------------------------- *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: 14,000 yen per adult *Included: Admission to the temples, First aid kit for primary treatment, guiding fee *Not included: Transport within the route(About 2,200 yen per person) , Meals & drinks, accommodation, insurance -------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------- -Up to 4 people (Minimum 2 people) -Private tour (Only your group) -------------------------------------------------------------- <CANCELLATION POLICY> -FREE CANCELLATION ... 48 hours before the meeting time -NO REFUND ...
