Tourist Spots At Kita Kamakura

Kita Kamakura is known for its famous hydrangea season. Meigetsuin Temple is the number one spot for hydrangeas. 
Meigetsuin Temple is also known as the “Hydrangea Temple.” The blue hydrangeas that fill the slopes of the garden are breathtaking. The color, called “Meigetsuin blue,” is very beautiful.
Meigetsuin Temple is also known for its beautiful autumn scenery with its leaves. The circular window at the main hall is known as the Window Of Enlightenment. The garden, which is not open to the public, changes its appearance with the seasons and offers a beautiful view from this window. During the season of autumn leaves, you can catch a glimpse of the beautifully colored trees through the round window, making it a superb photo spot.

Located just off JR Kita-Kamakura Station is Engakuji Temple, the second largest temple of the Rinshu sect of Buddhism in the Kamakura Gozan (Five Temples of Kamakura), and another famous tourist attraction in Kita-Kamakura.

This zen temple represents Kita-Kamakura and was founded by Hojo Tokimune, the 8th regent of the Kamakura Shogunate, who invited Muhaku Sogen, a high priest from China (Song Dynasty).
