If you want to start early at 10 o'clock, you can buy at Engakuji and take a walk through the grounds.

To buy a ticket in North Kamakura old house museum in this trip, first went on foot to the famous temple "Meigetsuin (Meigetsuin)" in hydrangea.

※ It is a flat road from Kita Kamakura Station to Meitsuki-inAbout 10 minutes. However, if you walk on the prefectural road side, there are many cars and a narrow road, so it is safer and safer to walk the road on the left side of the track towards Kamakura.


Speaking of Meizuki-in, the hydrangea of the Sanmon is famous, but it is natural that I visited in December. However, there was a lot of awareness only in winter, such as the soft dents on the stone steps that felt long years.

Window of enlightenment

We enjoyed the last autumn leaves from the famous round window. Also known as the window of enlightenment, it seems to symbolize the universe in this circle.

Squirrel and Jizo

A squirrel runs in the precinct, a cat takes a nap, a bird's hive and a rabbit hut are set up, and you can enjoy the lovely appearance of a small animal. In addition, winter clothes of wool are worn in Jizo statues etc. which are dotted on the site, and atmosphere was very kind and lovely, and it was such a temple where heart was warmed up.

Tsuruoka Hachimangu Shrine

This is a shrine about the Minshuku Yoritomo that opened the Kamakura Shogunate, so if you want to go sightseeing in Kamakura, you can not miss it!

By the way, from Hachimangu-mae, take a Keikyu bus and head for Jyoyoji. The east side of Kamakura with Kamakura-gu, Sugimoto-ji, Jyoyoji-ji, and Bokoku-ji is an area that is difficult to reach on foot, as it is a distance from the station.

However, if you go to the front of each entrance bus, this "Kamakura free environment bill" will be very useful!

So I went to this area this time. First of all, head to Jyonyoji (note: the name of the bus stop is Jyoji). Take the Keikyu Bus to Otorai, Kanazawa Hakkei, and Highland.

※ We are not included in this route, but please go to "Otonomiya" bus when going to Kamakura palace.


Jyomyoji, one of Kamakura Gozan, is a temple that has the appearance of a samurai in that it is Ashida's Bodhi Temple. There is a slightly famous one house restaurant in the precinct here.

As you go to the main hall and go up the stairs and slope across the tea room with the garden of dry mountain water on the left back, you can see the fallen Western-style building and the English-style garden, which are totally different from the traditional Japanese scenery. The

A restaurant called "Ishikasa Garden Terrace", recommended is a delicious dish using baked bread and Kamakura vegetables, which is a very popular restaurant among Kamakura madams.

Ishigaki Garden Terrace

If the weather is fine, I would recommend a terrace seat. How about an elegant lunch time while enjoying the scenery where you can see the seasonal flowers and Mt.

The bamboo forest spreads behind the main hall. It is thought that this spine stretches a pin when looking at what the scenery of bamboo more than 1000 trees which were fresh and straight overgrown.

Many of the temples in the temples and shrines of Kamakura are medieval tombs, surrounded by mountains on three sides, and deep valleysThis feature is unique to Kamakura's land, which is dotted with many "Tanito".

After visiting Torikoji, we will return to Kamakura Station by bus, and this time we will take Enoden to "Hase". (By the way, I got on the bus three times so far, so I got the original day ticket!)

※ The bus between Jyomyoji Kamakura Station runs at intervals of about 10 minutes during the daytime.

Once you get to Kamakura Station, you will get on Enoden next.

Enoden's free pass area is to Hase Station. There are many wonderful spots unique to Kamakura in the Hase area. Let's go right now!

First of all, go to Haseji Temple, which is also famous for hydrangea.


It is a popular temple that there is an admission restriction for the season of hydrangea. But not only hydrangeaThis attraction is Kannon Hase after all. It's bigger than expected, beautiful and overwhelmed. Thank you for your consideration.


In addition, there is a museum called "Kannon Museum" in the precinct, and treasures such as the eleven-sided statue of Kannon and the 33rd century statue are displayed. You can also see the reason of the temple in a 5-minute movie introducing Hase-dera.

In the area where the Kanon-do is located, there is a view stand where you can see the city and the sea in Kamakura, and it is a beautiful scenery, but please do not miss this "view walk path" above it!

Beautiful coastline of Yuigahama

You can overlook the beautiful coastline of Yuigahama. The stairs are a bit tight, but I would like you to see this scenery directly! That's excellent.

In addition, there are a few lovely Buddhas all over the precinct in Hase-dera, which makes you feel at ease.

Furthermore, there is a cave called "Bentan Caves", but here is a bit exciting like a dungeon search. When you get in a little while leaning inside, the inside is pretty wide like a maze. The figures of Buddha floating in the candlelight are very mysterious.

Benten Caves

Ajisai's season is good, but it is airy in winter and you can see the scenery far, so you can calm down and take a walk as there are few people!

It is about five minutes on foot from Hase-dera temple. There are also many souvenir shops on the way, and you can walk while enjoying yourself. It is a temple called "Kotokuin" where there is a large Buddha. You can see the figure as soon as you go through the gate.

Big Buddha of Kamakura who thinks, "It's big! Was it so big?" Every time it comes. I was stunned again on this day.

By the way, do you know that the Great Buddha of Kamakura will be put in the middle (in the womb)?

Inside the Great Buddha of Kamakura (in womb)

There is a wing-like window on the back and light enters from there, so the inside is not so dark.

Looking at the inside of the Great Buddha, it is easy to understand how to connect each part and make it, which is quite interesting.

It is "Kurumikko" of Kamakura Kotani. It is sweets that won the Kanagawa Prefectural Finest Confectionery Confectionery Competition Grand Prize. The package is doubled and fancy and cute.

"Kurumikko" of Kamakura Koya

It is packed with walnuts and caramel, but it is not heavy and too sweet.
