  • 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.

  • Kamakura's largest wooden Buddhist temple [josadang (width: 18.7 m depth: approximately 19.7 m)] visited can watch and learn. [2 Tianmen] [main gate], [original], and go up the stairs with the NIO guardian statues, which include [josadang]. Dragon landscape [2 Tianmen] and [josadang] [water] and so beautiful in scenery layered [josadang] seems certain myohon landscape is recommended. [Josadang] in Nichiren, which honours, t., Sun has, you can watch the door makes statues of 3 in the closed doors.

  • This temple in particular is very picturesque
  • 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.

  • Head temple of the Nichiren sect. The lush, solemn atmosphere fills the air. Come see the cherry blossoms in spring, and flower Metro. It is also a temple of Nakahara Chuya's memories. 11/2016, 5 second visits. A little late in the autumn, it was too much.
