  • It is convenient to take the vehicle in the rear when coming from of ofuna district by JR. It is a temple of The Otomune which is a few minutes' walk. There is no doubt that the manual sat in a place where the top people camped in the area, and that the temple is rich in nature.

  • Do you know "Hikari Shoji"? It is a temple in Yamanouchi where there are many historic sites in Kamakura. Among the temples of Kita-Kamakura, this temple is known for enjoying the flowers of the Four seasons, especially when the ishikusuka blooms, many tourists come to enjoy the beautiful flowering. When you climb the stone steps and pass through the three gates, there is a main hall in front of the small precincts and principal image is enshrined in Amida Buddha.

  • Quite small temple, mainly visited by the families of the people resting in its cemetery. The garden around is full of wild-ish plants. So, not much to see, but quite well maintained place with a feeling of authenticity. Probably best visited early spring or autumn for seasonal colors.
  • i spoke with the head monk of this temple and a very kind person. The point of interest here is behind the temple there is a white kannon statue. Inside also has a few treasures of worship.
