  • It's a beautiful and unique small temple as well as the oldest temple in kamakura. A beautiful green stairway (closed for traffic). Worth a visit as it is very unique!  more »
  • This temple captured everything I expected from a temple in Japan. It was quaint and peaceful. The moss covered stairs helped set the mood from the start, and you can explore inside the temple.  more »

  • Very beautiful little shrine with moss covered steps and flags. It reminds me of spirited away, the exact vibe... brings me back decades. People who go to Hokokuji don't often stop by here despite its proximity. This place is a little underrated.
  • One of the most mystical and enchanting temples I have ever been to, a real power spot.
  • Very beantiful temple. There're many old statues.
  • This place takes you back to the Good Old Days of Japan 🇯🇵
  • Moss-covered steps and the main temple is the great reward at the top of a long flight of stairs. Such a good treat!
