Ankokuronji Temple安国論寺

Temple

This temple began when the priest Nichiren built Ankokuronkutsuji temple close to a cave while writing his Rissho Ankoku Ron treatise. Many historic sites still remain such as the cave where Nichiren took refuge when the hermitage of Matsubagayatsu was set afire due its use as a base for proselytizing. Ankokuronji Temple is also famous for its beautiful flowers on the temple grounds that bloom in each season including peach and cherry trees and hydrangea.

Reviewed:2016/02/10 Quiet Traditional Temple
There are many temples in Kamakura. This is one of those that has few tourist. When I'm there, I hardly see anyone came in to this temple. Took some photos and climb up a little to take some scenery

鎌倉市内中心部から逗子のほうへと向かう道の途中にありました。日蓮上人とゆかりの深い寺で、立正安国論を書いたのがこちらだそうです。境内の裏手に上がっていくと、海の眺めがいい展望所もありました。
Reviewed:2017/01/12 日蓮ゆかりの由緒あるお寺
妙本寺と長勝寺の間にある日蓮宗のお寺です。日蓮が20年間過ごしたとされる松葉ケ谷の庵がこの周辺にあったようです。立正安国論を書いたとされる御法窟があります。緑が豊富で紅葉の名所でもあります。裏山に登ると富士見台があり、日蓮が富士山に向って毎日法華経を唱えたと伝わる。景色よいです。

Kanagawa Main Areas

around-area-map

Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
