This temple may not have such an immaculate garden like the nearby, and easier to reach Hokokuji, but it was definitely worth to me the little extra effort up the hill from the bus stop. There’s an attractive garden as one enters the temple area,...More

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, refer to "hiddenjapanguide".

Compare to Hokokuji which is around the corner, we thought this temple's entrance fee of 100 yen was so limited to see. In the leaflet given at the entrance states, there are Japanese rock garden and English garden, but it is not mentioned they are...More

This is a lovely little temple, located in Kamakura. While the temple is anything but impressive, being rather far from the road makes it possible for it to be tranquil. But there are far superior temples to see in Kamakura, so only visit it in...More
