Sagami Kokubunji is one of the Kokubunji temples built by Emperor Shomu in each country during the Nara period. It is known as an important temple site where you can see the layout of the main temples such as the central gate, corridor, main hall, tower, and auditorium, and it is also one of the earliest Kokubunji sites designated as a national historic site. Why don't you think about ancient Kanagawa while walking around the ruins of Kokubunji?

In addition, we will visit the exhibition "Ebina Kannon-sama" at the Ebina City Wenjikan, which is adjacent to the ruins of Kokubunji Temple. By viewing this together with the special exhibition "Sagami River Basin Mihotoke" , you will deepen your understanding of the Buddha statue in Ebina.

  • Ebina City Folk Museum "Ebina City Wenjikan"

This building was completed in 1918 as the Ebina Village Office Government Building. It is a modern building that is at the forefront of the times, and was built by incorporating an architectural style called the county office style. After that, Ebina City renovated a part of this building and opened it in October 1982 as the Ebina City Folk Museum "Ebina City Wenjikan". We have contributed to the development and improvement of local culture by collecting, storing and exhibiting literature, records, folklore, archeology and other materials related to the history of the region. The Wenjikan was opened in 1918 as a "relic display hall" in accordance with the designation of the Sagami Kokubunji site as a historic site. This name and materials were taken over when the local museum was opened in 1982.

High school and historical materials (stone tools, earthenware, Kokubunji roof tiles, etc.) are displayed on the 1st floor. On the 2nd floor, under the theme of "clothing, food, and housing," materials for learning about the lifestyles of ordinary people, such as living tools and farming tools from the Meiji, Taisho, and Showa eras, are displayed.

  • Historic site Sagami Kokubunji site

The historic site Sagami Kokubunji is located on a plateau about 500 meters east of Ebina Station. The surrounding area has been converted into a residential land by development, but the site has been maintained and opened to the public as a historical park, providing a place of relaxation for citizens and other visitors.

In addition, some of the temples and planes have been restored, allowing you to see what was happening at that time. The ruins of Nunji are about 500 meters north of Kokubunji. Residential land is approaching around Nanji, but the area around the ruins of Kondo is used by locals and other citizens as a regional plaza.
