    Is a Buddhist temple of the Nichiren sect without lots of tourists, in a very quiet, calm. And isn't there something wonderful buildings and Buddhist statues, in the precincts of the temple that sober feeling can be found. I felt I wanted to visit only those who seek nothing but relaxed atmosphere.

    I went to visit the graves of relatives. Had previously had so much Crow, incense for the grave was being hijacked and taken up on the roof of the building next to the statue of Nichiren's bitter experience, but I didn't Crow. On weekdays, was just how, but I have a couple, grave one set of people and tourists. Was expensive for grave flowers flower shop on the first floor of the Kamakura station Kamakura Tokyu kogiku of JA-on sale near the embattled 300 yen and calendula, bought two and 供えました to the grave. Just looked on the net, keep because there is Buddhist and amulets, but in the temple Office charm one buy received. We have recalled that the child visited at the memorial service, often spend a quiet moment.

    Very big ancient all wooden shrine with a huge tile roof. Located at the bottom of a small valley, it is a very peaceful place surrounded by nature and birds songs. All the park around the shrine is used as a cemetery, with a lot of variations in the graves styles and sizes. There is a big statue of Nichiren, the monk that inspired this shrine. The gate and main building have nice carvings, quite worth seeing. You can't get inside the building, but you can see. Visiting the place is free.

    Visit 10/11/2009. At that time, but was still so shrines & temples so not interested in heav'nly word more written on the Board such as shrines and store (nannteiuno) has taken in the photograph. It seems the heav'nly word resonates in the real. Photos taken at this temple then is this. Some are the words of Dr. Hinohara. The secret of this longevity is like.

    Will differ from the Temple of the tourist can visit until late. Near the grave of the hiki clan who served Minamoto no Yoritomo's nanny, like history of the Kamakura period is recommended. It is wonderful also lit up at night. It is a temple to see this environment always has a cat, so I want to go.

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.
