I went to Jojuin temple in Kamakura.
Jojuin temple is a Shingon sect temple founded in 1219.
In the Middle Ages, it was revered by the warriors of Kamakura.
In recent years, it has become famous for its hydrangeas, and in the beginning, 262 hydrangeas were planted, the same number of characters as the shortest Buddhist sutra, Hannya Shingyo.
Although the temple is small, Fudo Myoo Buddha statue is enshrined and is said to be effective in bringing people together.
The entrance to the temple is on a hill from which you can see the coast of Kamakura.
The temple is not as famous as other temples in Kamakura, so you can spend a quiet time there.
In June, you can enjoy the hydrangea and the quiet atmosphere.
If you are tired of the hustle and bustle of the sightseeing spots, why don’t you take a breather at Jojuin temple?
You will see a different side of Japan’s charm.
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
