Walk along Enoshima-michi and Oyama-michi(Part 2:Tsujido to Hiratsuka・Tamura)


(This course is the Tsujido to Hiratsuka・Tamura leg of the course from Enoshima to Oyama.)

During the Edo Period, “Oyama-mairi,” or climbing the mountain to pray, was very popular among the general public.

When the population of Edo was one million, about 200,000 people visited Mt. Oyama every year.

It was common to journey to worship the goddess Benzaiten in Enoshima after worshiping the god of Mt. Oyama, so much that there is a classical rakugo story about Oyama-mairi.

This course does the opposite, going from Enoshima to Oyama.

It is difficult now to follow the exact path that was used, but this course will take you from Tsujido to Hiratsuka・Tamura using signposts and other markers.

In Part 1, we introduced a course from Enoshima to Tsujido. This time, the course is from Tsujido to Tamura in Hiratsuka City.
