In addition, this temple is known for its enshrined imperial temple, which is also related to one of the seven kamakura seven mouths near the boundary with Yokohama in the east from the temple. The ojizo-sama in front of the main hall is called Shiokujizo, and the salt sales of Rokuura (now Kanazawa-ku, Yokohama) is derived from the fact that the salt prepared for the imperial warehouse every time it comes to Kamakura beyond the cut-off of Asahina was lost on the way back. The red and white plum sprout sprout sprouts were beautiful precincts.
It’s a peaceful place... around you can eat and take the transportation.
Lovely small temple with a nice pond on the left side. Not crowded and really nice to relax
