  • From Kamakura Station to Kamegayakiri-dori, take the side road and go up the hill. It is said that it was originally a temple of the Shinto sect called Yagiji Temple, but in 1283, the Japanese statue was converted to the Nichiren Sect and renamed yakuo-ji temple. Yakunoji temple was a temple related to the Tokugawa family, and there was a memorial tower of Tadanaga Tokugawa with the Image of The Sun-Ren Saint, which was made with the life of the Tokugawa family, and the three-leaf aoi crest. In addition to shakado, bell tower, animal memorial tomb, etc., it is a temple with a lot of attractions such as a stone pagoda and a stone buddha because yagura is dug in the rock wall in the back.
