  • 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 didn't notice the existence for many years because it was limited to the season and the day of the week. The spacious precincts offer a well-maintained garden.

  • 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.
