Small, secluded, peaceful Shinto shrine, dating to about the year 1100. Charms to bring success in education on sale. Enormous ginkyo tree, designated an historical monument by Kamakura city; expecially impressive with fall foliage.

Beautiful shrine. No pictures allowed but nice to visit.

Very peaceful setting tucked away at the base of a mountain. It's quite a walk through the neighborhoods of Kamakura and away from the hustle and bustle of the shopping area.

Slight out-of-ordinary small shrine - unusual design of doors on main temple, and statue which over the years several manga artists have etched original kappa (a Japanese mythical creature) illustrations.

Kamakura's most beautiful shrine in February, when the ume are blooming. Also has a big, ancient gingko tree, perched on the hillside by the shrine entrance.
