    A traditional Buddhist vegetarian restaurant located close to the Kencho-ji Temple, one of the “Kamakura Gozan” (Five Mountain Temples of Kamakura). Kenchin-jiru, a soup made by stewing burdock and other vegetables, was originally called “Kencho-jiru” because it was invented at the Kencho-ji Temple. Over the years, the pronunciation became corrupted until it achieved its present name. In addition to Kencho-jiru, diners can enjoy other soups with soba and udon noodles as well as the unique flavors of traditional Buddhist vegetarian cuisine made only with vegetables.
