Hasedera Temple is situated in one of the most scenic parts of Kamakura, and there is an observation platform with spectacular views of Kamakura’s streets and coastline. With beautiful trees and flowers that change with the seasons, the Hasedera Temple has been called “Kamakura’s Western Paradise,” and is affectionately known as the “temple of flowers.”

    Very nice temple, plenty of little inlets and sub-shrines to check out, including one in a cave. If you can go during late May/early June there are lovely hydrangeas blooming everywhere.
