Chojuji Temple Reviews
北鎌倉地区にある寺院。 鎌倉五山の筆頭の建長寺のすぐ側、少し小高い石段の上にありました。 下調べしないで行ったので拝観できませんでした。ここは限定で公開される場所でした。 春季（4・5・6月）、秋季（10・11月）、金・土・日・祝 午前10時～午後3時（雨天中止）に見学が出来ます。 足利尊氏の邸宅跡地に作られたお寺で、長寿寺の名前は、尊氏の法名が長寿寺殿からきているそうです。 足利尊氏坐像が祀られ... more »A temple in the Kita-Kamakura area. It was on a slightly higher stone step just beside Kenchoji Temple, the first of Kamakura Goyama. I couldn't see it because I went without checking it out. This was a limited place to be opened to the public. You can visit the spring season, may, and the autumn season, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and national holidays. This temple was built on the site of Mr. Ashikaga's mansion, and the name of the longevity temple is said to have come from The Longevity Temple Hall. It seems to be a temple where the statue of Mr. Ashikaga is enshrined, and there are many things related to Mr. Ashikaga son who also has a tomb where the remains of Mr. Ashikaga were buried. I would like to see the day again.

I am feeling extremely lucky for being able to go inside for a tour. All I know it is only open for specific date and hours. Whoever lucky enough to be there in that hour, just queue up to go in, no matter how long you have to wait, it just worth! The garden is amazing, and the best for autumn red leaves. I have never seems anything as beautiful as this. After visiting this garden, I feel that I don't need to go for another temple already. It is just GOOD.
I visited around 3:00pm, but it appeared to be closed off, with no signage explaining. The parts that I could see from outside were still beautiful.
