  •  It was 35 years ago, visited this temple for the first time. Feel attracted by suffering in human relations arrived in this temple.  Large jizo always visit me when I was young, depressed and suffer from human relations, is in the middle of my rescue. Visitors tour the temple... spirit is strong, too much of the month was supposed to be, in the main hall to freshen people, loud yapping ladies. Far to come to be very calming to people has been increasing steadily. Change in Kamakura was my favorite the temple but is a pity.

  • Near tsurugaoka hachimangu shrine, is near the main road to serenity Temple. Nokyo-sho you how at the reception at the entrance, not in the main hall on the right hand side. The head priest of Sugimoto-DERA is en route to the hokoku-ji Temple and interlocking pattern. Kamakura Enoshima 7 happiness as he like.

  • Jizo bodhisattva the principal object of worship is very beautiful. Deep emotion that destroyed the Hōjō at this location in retrospect. Just don't know what a historical background, a special exhibition is there not, not for the general public.

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.
