An ancient temple with numerous historical architecture such as a reliquary hall (Shari-den) and a temple bell, both considered to be national treasures.

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.

Travel tip

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.
