  • Opposite the great Buddha and close to the beach this temple at the foot of the mountain is very relaxing and interesting. There is a large esplanade after the 1st gate and on either side of the main temple 2 small wonders. On the right is a Zen garden with rocks, sand and trees, and on the left is a pretty lotus flowerbed. This temple is beautifully decorated with interior beams and furniture. Presence of a tower with a bell. Visit 15-20 minutes

  • I was surprised to turn to the back side. It is in the tombstone group of the Naito family of the Iwaki-hei clan in the daimyo of the staff. It is said that Komei-ji temple became a bodhisattva temple at the time of the 5th generation Tadako. Anyway, there are a lot of stone towers. There are 58 in total, and it is said that the gravestone of the huge tombstone of Tadaxing which extends to the height and the length of the fourth generation is the one of 11 years of Kanei (1634). I looked around and felt a little creepy.

  • Single temple attractions, Sakura blossom density is so high, building materials and maintain the original color of ancient wood, the temple has so many convertible views, is my personally recommended private attractions.
  • True pure land Buddhism here. Large well planned out temple. 40 minute walk from Kamakura Station and well worth it. You feel good after leaving.
