From the Nagoshi cut-through to the Oogishi and Zushi Highland Korobariyama entrances


Passage through the Nigetsu Cutting Passage (between the Nigetsu region and the Chugoku region)

From the Chosho-ji bus stop, it takes about 10 minutes to reach the entrance to the Nagoe Kiridoshi.

Kamakura, where Minamoto no Yoritomo established his residence in 1180, was a strategic location surrounded by the sea to the south and hills on three other sides. Therefore, it is thought that most of the overland routes into Kamakura were either narrow and steep mountain paths over ridges or dangerous paths under the cliffs at the edge of the waves.
The Nagoshi-kiridoshi is one of the main roads connecting Kamakura and the Miura Peninsula, and there are many stone quarries, caves, and other remains from that period in the surrounding area.
The Mandarado Yagura group along the way will be open to the public for a limited time.
See Zushi City HP.

From the viewing platform at the Monkey Hatake, the Ooigishi is a series of sheer cliffs 3~10 meters high for more than 800 meters along the ridge.
Along with the cut-through, it has been said to be a defensive site from the early Kamakura period, but excavations have now confirmed that it is the site of a stone quarry that was eventually left in the form of a castle wall as a result of large-scale stone quarrying operations.

Mount Rikuzan

The origin of Mt. Korobari comes from a legend that Minamoto no Yoritomo, who founded the Kamakura shogunate, and his wife, Masako, stretched their robes on this mountain to make it look like a snow-covered mountain to cool off.
