Compared to the main temples in Kamakura, this one is hidden in a small alley which is not easy to find. The temple os not big or something that may impress visitors and there are no statues around it for you to learn about history.

Our second time in Japan, we came to Kamakura at the recommendation of a waiter, of all people. We came to Jufukuji completely by accident, and as we wandered around the graveyard, I started to notice the numerous Yagura, which are very prevalent here. I...More

This is an easy temple to get to from the station. The long stone path is flanked on both sides by trees in mossy beds. The temple can be viewed from the gate. It is small but set in a beautifully kept garden. Picture perfect!...More
