The route will follow the Hayakawa Kataura Walking Trail outlined on the Odawara City homepage including the historic Ishibashiyama battlefield and scenic views of the coast. A shortcut into Hayakawa Station will be added near the end of the hike to save time.


    The itinerary for the day is:


    • 10:00 – Meet at JR Nebukawa Station 
    • 10:00-15:00 – Hike from Nebukawa Station to Hayakawa Station 
    • 15:00 – event ends at JR Hayakawa Station w optional refreshments in the Hayakawa Port area


    Participants should be prepared for approximately 4-5 hours of hiking and walking. Break opportunities will be limited, so it is important to take advantage of all restroom opportunities. Some vending machines will be available, but participants should bring their own drinks, snacks and bagged lunch. This hike is not overly strenuous, however it is unsuitable for small children or those with physical limitations. The group size will be limited so please RSVP early.
