  • Is the fifth place of the Kamakura gozan temples, but it was a weekday because some people were in at least the quiet. It was like a Zen Buddhist temple and Zen Garden atmosphere.

  • If you have time after visiting the bamboo garden at Hokokuji temple, then drop by. But, don`t expect too much here. There is a cafe and a Japanese tea house, if you would like to rest a bit. For more...  more »

  • Jomiyo Temple is a small and very peaceful holy place. Clean facilities and a very nice teahouse offering two choices of tea with a snack while you sit and watch the stone garden.
  • In November, we got to see both red maple and one tree with blooms. Some uphill walking required to reach Ishigama Garden Terrace. Serene.
  • Elegant, quiet temple, a must-see!
  • Very quiet and beautiful shrine. Not much crowds. Jus opposite of the bus stop in front of Hokokuji temple.
  • Wonderful place to appreciate serenity and peace.

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.
