材木座海岸のすぐ近くにあるお寺です。 わたしは自転車で行きましたが、もし車で海側を走ると、逗子まで間違っていってしまう可能性があるので、注意が必要です。 蓮の花で知られ、わたしはそれを見に行きました。 今回で3回目だと思うのですが、落ち着くところが好きです。 お寺の前の駐車場は広く、今回は海水浴で訪れる人も駐車していました。 靴を脱ぎ、スリッパを履いて見学します。 本堂の左側に蓮池があり、右側には枯山水庭園があります。 廊下を歩き、本堂の裏側にトイレがあります。 靴を履き、本堂の右(枯山水庭園の横)を歩くと、裏側の山に登ることができます。 そこからは、鎌倉の海も眺めることができます。 鎌倉駅から小坪行のバスに乗れば、お寺の前に停車します。 It is a temple located in the immediate vicinity of the Zaimokuza beach.

We found this temple on our way back to Kamakura station and decided to visit. This temple is so beautiful and peaceful. We can just sit there for hours feeling nothing but peace. A good place to visit away from the busy street.

It's a wonderful temple, peaceful, in a fantastic natural setting. The zen garden is nice and there is a panoramic viewpoint just backward. It's a free temple.
