Goshuin: YES (Images: Cat, train) Entry Fee: No Sadly, it says one's not allowed to take photos on temple grounds, but there where Japanese people taking pictures in front of the shop and no one said a thing. I didn't take any out of respect, but you know... kinda unfair if you see what others do.

Great shrine with unique gods only a 5 minute walk away from the daibutsu. It's also special because the denentoshi-line runs right next to the shrine. Please be careful not to take dangerous pictures near the train line and keep the narrow paths into the shrine open.

This place became one of my favorites in Kamakura. Very special and unique shinja. It has a cat which seems quite old but wise. Also, the right in front of shinja has the rail road, which makes the shinja look much more spectacular. This shinja sells 2 unique lucky charms that are based on the cat and the rail road. The place is quiet and has much fewer tourists. It was awesome.

Out of the way, beautiful, peaceful with no photos allowed. The Enoden trains run right alongside the main entrance, and its a beloved photo-op due to the tumnel. Lovely goshuin has the temple's black & white cat included.

I very nice shrine, a little further down past the Hase train station, also know as Goryo Jinji Shrine. It very peaceful and nice place to just relax and enjoy the beauty on a sunny day. The passing train makes for a nice video or photo
