This temple is very close to Kamakura station and is particularly beautiful in Sakura season . Shidarezakura usually blossom early . Sakura together with pine tree with temple int the back ground makes great contrast for photography .

Not really quiet place cause the town in quite near, but with deep historical background.

A beautiful temple just a few minutes walk from the Kamakura Station. It was a little busy but they were preparing for the New Year so it was very understandable, they were putting up the lanterns. It’s a nice temple complex with multiple smaller temples on the grounds.

God of business, come hear and buy KUMADE if you earn money in business( KUMADE is a tool for scraping grains and fallen leaves. Made of bamboo. )

Quite big shrine with a big wooden gate. Free to visit. Not possible to get or see inside the main building. The park is wide, a bit empty but has some nice trees.
