Daihonzan Engaku-ji Temple
An ancient temple with numerous historical architecture such as a reliquary hall (Shari-den) and a temple bell, both considered to be national treasures.
Early Morning Sightseeing
Breathe in the cool air of the morning to prepare yourself physically and mentally, and start your day feeling refreshed.
A monk will guide you to Sharyuden, the only national treasure building in Kanagawa Prefecture that is not normally open to the public. At Nyoi-an, listen to a special sutra reading, experience zazen, talk with the monks, and enjoy green tea and Japanese sweets.
Just a one-minute walk from Kita-kamakura Station. Visit in late autumn when the leaves are at their most beautiful, and the teahouse is serving delicious hot sweet sake.
