    When you think abou Kamakura, the first thing which comes up to your mind is the Kamakura Daibutsu, the big statue of Buddha. It’s such a mystic experience to find yourself in front of “him” due to its imponence. The temple itself, apart from the Big Buddha, is relaxing and liveable too.

    Very nice temple, plenty of little inlets and sub-shrines to check out, including one in a cave. If you can go during late May/early June there are lovely hydrangeas blooming everywhere.

    An attraction in Kamakura is the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine. The shrine has a nice lead in through attractive gardens, and there are steep steps going right up to it. It's as good as all the other shrines we've seen so far in Japan.

    Beautiful temple and shuttle this visit between the big Buddha and walking street will be perfect for a full day outing. We drove and lucky to get car park. Parking is limited and stroller friendly.

    The Kenchoji is one of Kamakura’s most important Zen temples and has many great historic sites and nature spots to offer. From the mysterious Butsuden Buddha Hall, a garden designed by a Zen master, to a small mountain shrine protecting the temple itself, visitors can spend a few peaceful hours at this temple.
