One of Kamakura’s five great Zen temples, Jochi-ji is just a few hundred meters away from its head temple of Engaku-ji and is also famed for its hydrangeas. It was founded in 1283 by ruling members of the Hojo family and is renowned for the calm and contemplative atmosphere of its forested setting.

After viewing the Buddhist trinity of the Amida Buddha, Shaka Buddha and Miroku Buddha in its Dongeden, follow the circular path that leads through the temple gardens that ignite with hydrangeas during the summer. Adjacent to the temple is the start of the Daibutsu Hiking Trail, which leads to Kamakura’s Great Buddha in around an hour.
