Kamakura kodo path and Yusakamichi

Experience the rich nature of Hakone

Ashigara route which was the major road was closed after Mt.Fuji exploded in 802. Yusakamichi and Kamakura kodo were created instead. The noblemen (bushi) used to travel to the three important shrines of Hakonegongen, Izusangongen and Mishimamyojin. They would use this new route and it is recorded that Minamoto no Yoritomo also walked this road. This route has a longer history than the Old Tokaido Way. Secluded and uncrowded route where visitors can quietly experience the rich nature of Hakone.
