Former Kacho-no-miya Residence旧華頂宮邸
Located in the mountains beyond the Hokoku-ji Temple, this Western-style building was built as a residence for Marquis Kacho Hironobu, an Imperial prince, in 1929. The French-style garden is filled with greenery and blooms with flowers year round. The garden has also been selected as one of the top 100 historic gardens in Japan. In 1996, the city of Kamakura acquired the land and building. In 2006, the building was designated an Important Scenic Structure by the city as well as a Tangible Cultural Property (Structure) by the national government.

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.
