This temple is most notable for its wooden statue of Kannon, the 11-headed goddess of mercy, but it also has a lovely garden and pond, and a viewing platform with a great city view.

Kamakura is a short train ride from Tokyo and should not be missed! It is a quick ride on the JR Yokosuka line that goes directly to Kamakura station. Apart from a must visit to the Great Buddha of Kamakura, you must go and see...More

This Temple is a short (10 min.) walk from Kotoku-in (Great Buddha). I recommend you see it. The beautifully landscaped grounds are a joy to walk around.

This was a beautiful temple. Beautiful grounds and you get a nice view of the beach from the temple. Flowers were in bloom and we had the added luck of viewing a koko and wood flute performance. It really was magical.

It depends. It is a complex of temples, gardens and shrines, starting near the entrance. Connected by paths and stairs.There is a nice view from a platform, about 50 steps, if I remember correctly.

We were there just last week. There was some maintenance going on, and possibly some scaffolding over a few structures. It definitely didn't detract from the temple or the gardens in any way. Unless something major is... More
