This temple is most notable for its wooden statue of Kannon, the 11-headed goddess of mercy, but it also has a lovely garden and pond, and a viewing platform with a great city view.

Visited with a baby during the week, and the crowds were bearable. They explain you at the gate where to leave the stroller, so no problem, as long as your baby is capable of climbing the stairs or in a carrier ( like mine). The...More

Entry to the temple costs 400 yen, and I had to admit - this temple has a lot to offer as compared to the Kotoku-in. So, I don't regret the double in the entry fee. A lot of places to see in this temple, and...More

A beautiful temple complex on a hillside in Kamakura. The architecture of the temples is stunning. The ponds and gardens attract some beautiful wildlife including some very large red and blue dragonflies as well as cicadas. The viewing platform has spectacular views across Kamakura. There...More

While Kamakura has many temples and shrines, Hasedera was my favourite. It has small trails and ponds, caves, amazing history, and many artifacts and shrines. And it has unbelievable photo opportunities. Simply beautiful.

It depends. It is a complex of temples, gardens and shrines, starting near the entrance. Connected by paths and stairs.There is a nice view from a platform, about 50 steps, if I remember correctly.
