This temple is most notable for its wooden statue of Kannon, the 11-headed goddess of mercy, but it also has a lovely garden and pond, and a viewing platform with a great city view.

The temple is located in Hase. I took the Enoden line from Kamakura to Hase to get there. You need climb a number of stairs to reach the temple which is located on a hillside. I recommend the view from there. Don't miss the cave which belongs to the temple.

If you see one thing in Kamakura you have to see this. The structures are amazing, theirs a 60+ ft golden Buddha, cave carvings, beach views and gorgeous gardens all for 300 yen.

This is a short train ride away from Tokyo. Be sure to visit the sites, shop the local stores, and see this temple. Kamakura is a great place and this is one of the more impressive temples in the area. We found some great shops and prices in route to this temple. Also be aware there is less English spoken...

Coming from the parking lot, restaurants and food outlets welcome visitors on the walk to the ticket Booth. Inside the complex, there's a museum with a complete set of the different Kannon and my first to see the 11-headed Kannon. The technology in presenting this particular Kannon was impressive in that it gave me the chance to zoom in the... More

Took the little 'Enoden' line train from Kamakura to Hase. From there it was only a short walk to the temple and then just another short stroll on to the great Buddha. Hasedera was impressive with a nice view of the sea and the town, and by far the nicest temple I visited but having visited 'Narita', I found Kamakura... More

Hase-dera and Kotokuin Buddha are inseparable to experience. It's the walking street between Hase Station - Hasedera - Kotokuin that provides the whole link of experience. You can choose to have a taste in the vegetarian restaurant at the top area or in some small restaurants surrounding the temple entrance. We spotted an unagi restaurant we unfortunately did not try.

when I think of it, I recall the greens, trees, birds and little water pools with fish, and the scenery, when you can see Kamakura from above. if it's a sunny day do yourself a favour and go to Kamakura, it's just 50 mnts away from Tokyo.

On our 2nd day in Japan we caught the train from Tokyo to visit the area. After visiting another attraction we decided to visit here, without any expectations. We were both amazed! Such a beautiful setting, the architecture was amazing, the gardens were immaculate! The Temple was such a special and spiritual place. Around every corner there was another hidden... More

One of the favourite places we visited in Japan. Beautiful temple in a stunningly beautiful setting. Wonderful Buddha statues .... particularly the little cute ones!
