Hase-dera

Hase-dera is in my opinion one of the best attraction of Kamakura. Not only the temple itself is gorgeous, its gardens are splendid as well. The temple is located at higher altitude than Kamakura itself. Viewpoints from the temple therefore offer an impressive overlooking view on Kamakura and its beach. The temple also hosts the Benten-Kutsu Cave which contains hundreds of small devotional statues in its long and narrow corridors.

Kamakura Bamboo Forest (Hokoku-ji temple)

Hokoku-ji temple, also sometimes called Take-dera (Take = bamboo in Japanese) is famous for its beautiful bamboo grove. About two thousand bamboo trees grow on the premise of the temple. The strength of Hokoku-ji temple is undoubtedly its forest and gardens which inspire total peace of mind. An open-air Japanese tea-house is located in annex to the temple. Traditional Japanese Matcha tea can be enjoyed while peacefully looking at the forest.
