There is a station three stops from Kamakura Station on the Enoden Line that is called Hase.
A great little station. It is the closest station to the Giant Buddha and also to Hase Temple which houses the Golden Bodhisattva,
called the Kannon. A beautiful place to check out the Hydrangeas too.
The Hase Temple is a great place to spend a long day.
At this time of year you can enjoy the Hydrangeas that litter the hillside where the temple is located.
As soon as you go into the temple grounds you’l find a lovely pond, caves and a collection of hundreds of small buddha statues.
Go up the hill to the top and there you’ll find the Kannon inside a very large temple.
This is one of the biggest statues in Japan. All made from a giant trunk of the Camphor tree.
There is also a nice outdoor dining area where you can look out over the Yuigahama bay. Enjoy your beer.
See you in a week.
