    The temples of Rinzai sect kenchoji temple along the Kanazawa road in Kamakura. Founded in 1188 (0/1188). A fifth of the Kamakura gozan. The massive roof of the main building reported that the weight of history, stately. Are extensively takes the passages are open. Unique Zen Zen Garden is impressive.

    I don't me wrong. The temple is small and rather sober, but also has its charm. However, in a place like Kamakura, where temples as impressive as Hase-dera, Tsurugaoka or Kencho-ji, you have Jomyoji you can know little. In addition, is something remote, especially if you go on foot. We visited it because we had come to know bamboo forest that is inside the Temple of Hokokuji and this temple was on the side.

    This temple is a historic fifth place in the Kamakura gozan temples. Many tourists away from Kamakura station to a stroll along the namerikawa it is. Allegedly, most like Kamakura Temple bamboo hokoku-ji Temple there. Why not. It is recommended for couples. It is located within the area nice and why not say, so much to say, but. It is never likely to attract women. After exploring the temple garden, dining in the restaurant and would be best. Your stock will go up! It is. Yes.

    In November, we got to see both red maple and one tree with blooms. Some uphill walking required to reach Ishigama Garden Terrace. Serene.

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.
