Koshoji Temple Reviews
大船方面からＪＲで来る場合は後方の車両に乗ると便利です。徒歩数分のところにある時宗のお寺です。説明書きには一遍上人が野宿した場所に建てられたとか、寺内は自然豊のようで（これも書いていることですが）四季折々の花を楽しめるのは間違いなさそうです。 more »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.
「光照寺」をご存じですか？鎌倉の中でも史跡が多くある山ノ内にある寺院です。北鎌倉の代表する寺院の中で、こちらの寺院は四季折々の花々が楽しめることで知られていて、特に石楠花の咲くころには美しい開花を楽しみに来る観光客も多い。石段を登り三門をくぐると、こじんまりとした境内の正面に本堂があって本尊は阿弥陀如来が祀られています。 more »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.
