  • The precinct was prohibited. No admission can anyone enter the environment. It is shrouded in silence, calming the temple. Tourist looking for people is not enough. I think I'm sure hasn't changed since the Kamakura period atmosphere.

  • Hydrangea heaven! Through these gates you have to hunch down to get in. The best time to visit this temple is in the summer for me! The hydrangea are mind blowing. Very rudimentary during off season.
  • A clean and tidy traditional small temple without special attraction. No photo is allowed within the premises.
  • Nice small shrine with beautiful flowers. Please be noted that no photos allowed inside the shrine
  • Jiang-down electric gokuraku-ji Temple Station, soon the gokuraku-ji Temple. Is the premises I visited after the Kamakura great Buddha (kōtoku-in) I felt it a little in good condition not?. After I received the nokyo-sho. Kamakura Temple most ties enkakuji Temple of kencho-JI sect, Nichiren Buddhism is is mostly and Shingon ritsu sect is this temple. Gamblers was established by the Hōjō clan in Hojo heavy when the founder called the pagoda of buinsa Temple, its lineage is called the gokuraku-ji Temple flow. On-site for photo taking is prohibited so careful when praying.

  • Premises is prohibited. And through the small entrance welcomes the solemn and beautiful tree-lined approach. Is nokyo-sho and I nervously asked me very nice, hoguremashita feels relieved. Large Crape Myrtle spread out in front of the main hall are enshrined, is overwhelming.

Where to stay in Kamakura

Given the easy access from Tokyo via a number of public transport options, the vast majority of visitors to Kamakura choose to stay in the capital and head here for a day trip. If you feel there's too much to see in one day, then you'll be pleased to find a decent selection of accommodations in Kamakura itself. Down by the sea sit perhaps the most luxurious of the crop, with sea views high on the list of desires for those who stay here. Follow the river as it snakes inland past the train station, and you'll see a good number of more standard hotels, as well as particularly budget-friendly guesthouses.
