The Ikego Artifacts Museum is located on the third floor of the gym. Over 4,000 boxes of artifacts were discovered over the 30 acres of research area. These artifacts, extending from the Pre-ceramic Age (before the third century B.C.) to the Modern Age, provided us with precious data to about the previously unknown history of the Ikego area. The museum is open Wednesdays & the 1st and 3rd Saturday each month, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free.
The Clam Rock exhibit is located behind the gym next to the tennis courts. You will be able to see the giant white clams (know as the "living fossils") that inhabited the waters near cracks in the earth’s crust deep in the sea over three million years ago.
If you love the great outdoors then you’ll enjoy the campsite here on base. It’s located in the West Valley. The campsite is the perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy Mother Nature at her best, with a beautiful view of the pond.
If you like strolling through the woods, you’ll enjoy hiking here in Ikego. We have two great hiking trails. The short trail next to the Clam Rock takes about 30 minutes -- bring along a lunch and enjoy a picnic at the top. For the more advanced hikers, the longer trail is located next to the camping area. This trail takes about 50 minutes to hike and leads you out near the entrance to the housing area. Some of the trails in Ikego are over 300 years old, and are the original trails that once led to Kamakura City.
