  • It is a temple of the time when it exists in a quiet area called twelve places in the east end of Kamakura City. The founding of the temple is transmitted to the founder of Tokimune, and a statue of the superior stands in the precincts. According to the history, the wooden Amida Buddha of The Honson and the statue of the samurai on both sides (Amida of cheek ware) are legendary as punishment for the suspected thief and left a burn mark on his cheek. 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.
