Anyo-in Temple

Anyo-in Temple

This temple is associated with Hojo Masako. Masako built a temple in Sasame (in the area of the Kamakura Literature Museum) to mourn the loss of Minamoto no Yoritomo, but it burned down with the fall of the Kamakura shogunate in 1333, so it was moved to this location. Incidentally, "Anyoin" is the Buddhist name of Masako, and "Chorakuji" is the Buddhist name of Yoritomo. The temple is now famous for its azalea blossoms.
