I heard that you can purify yourself by confessing to Enma-sama, so I decided to walk up the slope behind Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine for a little longer! I visited on foot. Beyond imagination. . . Although it is small, I was surprised at the depth of the content. You all know By reading the manual, such as the true origin of the Sanzu River and Enma-sama, and the monks guiding the lost ones, you will surely see things differently. I have uploaded some content, It is a place where you can learn about the rituals of mourning the dead, read on, and face your love for others and grudges, and think deeply, even if only for a moment. I think everyone who visits has a variety of feelings. . .

Ennoji temple in Kamakura is a hidden gem that offers a peaceful escape from the bustling city. Nestled amidst lush greenery, this temple exudes a sense of tranquility and spirituality. The beautifully preserved main hall and serene garden create a serene atmosphere, making it a delightful spot for introspection and reflection. Pictures inside are allowed. If you are visiting Kencho-ji nearby it's worth it!

A very old and weathered temple that worships the Ten Judges of Hell. The temple as a whole is beautifully aged and not as kept up as many other temples, in the area, but I feel that that added to it’s character. We enjoyed exploring the temple and learning more about the history of Japan.
