  • Walk from the East exit of Kamakura station wakamiya ōji crosses and residential walk-follow and arrive at a certain myohon in 8 minutes. We recommend finding a signpost. Was exquisite carvings, Komorebi is restless. It is perfect for those who enjoy a quiet stroll in a short period of time.

  • 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.

  • God has come through here, that's how much I love this place personally. The monks burn incense so much through-out the day that you can smell the fragrance all around the temple grounds outside. Autumn is definitely the season to be out and about in Myohonji. It was breath taking. When you enter through the main gates, put a coin in the box, bow and clap. The main hall is huge. Postcards and travel magazines fail to capture the true scale of the place; you quite literally have to be there standing there....just being there. The fall foliage gracing the temple's trellises. There's a distant bell bellowing sounds of souls through the gardens eaves and creeks. I have found my favorite temple of souls. Love it here.
  • 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.
  • beautiful, can get very crowded in high season!
  • This temple in particular is very picturesque
  • YouTube was visited here. Knowing that there are graves of Admiral was active in the Russo-Japanese war had seen what a damn, we have to 御参ri. Worthy, was quietly sleeping in the bosom of the hiki-Valley. It is appreciated. Located not far from the station is Temple in a quiet, neat and clean. Gate also Hall worthy, priest is a great. I'm greeting from priests. Serene deportment become heart healthy. Thank you very much.
