  • Is the temple where the garden is in good condition, and the precincts are surrounded by a dignified atmosphere? I was impressed. The flowers and trees are beautiful. It was during Golden Week, but there weren't many visitors. I recommend it for the person who wants to spend a quiet time.

  • It is located in a natural location at the foot of Mt. Genji. It is said that it was a large temple with seven temples in the Kamakura period, but it was destroyed when the Kamakura Shogunate was destroyed and was rebuilt afterwards. It is also called the temple of water because there is a "well of the bottom fall" in front of the mountain gate due to the enlightenment of the nun, and "16 wells" that kobo daishi dug. The statue of The Yakushi Buddha, who is enshrined in the Buddhist hall on the left hand side of the main hall, has the tradition of a Buddhist-faced yakushi in the womb, can be seen from the window of the open temple. It is a temple that can become a quiet state while being greeted by buddhas in the iwa-like yagura of kamakura, and touching the flowers of the branches hanging on the mountain gate.

  • Free parking available. The temple itself is not so much interesting...
  • Most beautiful in late November with fall foliage covering the bell. Nice and spacious. Must remove shoes when ascending the alter.
