This event was one of the best so far. For the first time we go hiking with children. And for the first time these kids went hiking as well.
It was for sure an exciting experience for all. We walked 8 km and none of the children once complained! they were instead happy and excited running around and asking me which way should they go, holding my hands when they want to jump and hope like bunnies. Children are truly a bless.
We started our hike walking toward Zeniarai Benten where we took a small break, washed coins, watched colorful pond fish called "Coy" in Japanese, and then prayed for an abundant fruitful year.
we then kept going uphill toward Genjiyama park where I organized an Easter Party. We started dancing on "Here come Peter Cottontail", played I Spy colorful eggs, then went on an Egg Hunt. We concluded our fun at the park having a picnic-lunch.
After lunch, we resumed our hike, this time for the Bamboo Forest. The mothers loved that place and asked me if we could stay and enjoy the bamboos for a while. We spent our time there playing "Hide and Seek" and "Duck Duck Goose" games. It was truly so much fun for us all.
After enjoying the bamboo forests and meeting other children also playing around. We resumed our hike through the Bamboo forest and back to Kamakura City where we all had Ice-creams and snacks.
I am truly forever grateful for the mothers and their children for joining Feather Legs' event. I'll be waiting for them to come again next month <3
Hope more of you can join as well!
