Manpukuji Temple

Founded by the Buddhist priest Gyoki, Manpukuji is a temple of the Daikakuji sect of Shingon Buddhism. Legend says that Minamoto-no-Yoshitsune (who destroyed the Taira clan at the Battle of Dan-no-ura and later incurred the wrath of his older brother Yoritomo, who banned him from entering Kamakura) wrote a letter of apology 'Koshigoe-jo' to his angry brother at this temple.
