Ankokuronji Temple安国論寺


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.

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

Kanagawa Main Areas


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.
