  • In the Kamakura and only Temple visited know. Look at the ceiling when you admire the statue of Amida Sanson in the Buddha Hall (country, important cultural property) (of luck, work), and dragons, depicted midst, Angel and fecundity, and very still. It is recommended that directed his gaze over to you were watching in the Hall, ceiling paintings are admired. Also find a sculpture of the Zodiac you 12 Zodiac sculptures located around the Hall, so what. You may want to watch the statue of Amida Sanson of the Tower back and leg to advance to the Tower, the tower gate (country, important cultural property) (however not Tathagata general central location in this statue of Amida Sanson, right Amitabha Buddha is not visible in the rocks and can see only the Kannon and seishi). In addition here are off Thursday, so visitors will avoid Thursday.

  • Because of the Kamakura gozan one located next to the 寿福 Temple is good to tour together. Admission fee is 300 yen. June was blooming hydrangeas. Because not many people can enjoy. Amaryllis bloom in the second half of September.

  • In Kamakura seems to be the only Nunnery. Along the track on the way towards the tale of Mt. Hachiman-gu shrine from the Temple of the Jodo sect. Buildings and main gate are important cultural assets in the country.

  • I worship at the 29 / 04 / 2016. Always is the main gate of JR Yokosuka line has been stiffly shut. Admission can be entered from the entrance, past the main gate. Paying 200 yen admission fee, entrance route to go as butsuden, Buddha shrine Temple (karamon), Bell Tower can be seen smoothly. Especially Tokugawa Iemitsu donor unkei made the wooden Amitabha Buddha and oversee the Act natural also wooden Daishi is enshrined. If you open the door you can see in the front. Might as well especially to Buddha Zodiac sculptures since their zodiac to elevens. These are the remains of temple during the Edo period. Counting from Ōta dōkan hidekatsu hospital open in 4 second son Yasushi (yasusuke) daughter. And I'd called, who served Tokugawa Ieyasu. Served as the adoptive mother of the Mito House founder Tokugawa yorifusa, title and wins the British Academy and became a priest after the death of Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu. Shrine built by Mito mitsukuni hidekatsu hospital after his death, the Imperial Palace is the most representative.  Called Mito Palace in the old days, on both sides of the main gate of trefoil Hollyhock is suite main gate open earthen wall of loess is only death of British WINS. From Bach Dang at the back gate of the Wisteria and the JR Yokosuka line also hear here at Valley to wind into the swaying bamboo and bamboo forest entrance might be fun sometimes hear sounds but ruined. Reizei phase (reisenn for final) of mother "izayoi diary" of there was a memorial tower called the grave of author abutsuni.

  • It is a temple of the Jodo sect of the Tokugawa family. You can not hesitate a little away and about a 15-minute walk from Kamakura station is along the railway. Sound of train sounds and the sound of the wind flowing between bamboo leaves and very tastefully bamboo can travel in to-ji Temple, occasionally giving taste and comfort in mind.
