Hongaku-ji Temple本覚寺

Temple

A five-minute walk from the East Exit of JR Kamakura Station. Ashikaga Mochiuji built then donated to the priest Nisshutsu this temple on the site of the Ebisu-do where Nichiren stayed at after returning from his exile to Sado before moving on to the Minobusan Kunon-ji Temple. Because the temple houses some of the ashes of Nichiren from the Kuon-ji Temple, it is also known as the Kuon-ji of the East. The graveyard on the temple’s grounds contains a stone monument said to be the grave of the renowned swordsmith Okazaki Goro Masamune.

駅に近いですが、皆さん小町通りや段葛の方へ進まれるので、本覚寺さんの方へ行かれる方は少し少な目ですね。
でも、ここにはとても素敵な「しだれ桜」の木があるんです。
春の桜の季節に鎌倉にいらしたら、写真を撮るのに訪れてもいいかもしれません。
もちろんその前に、お参りを忘れずに。

鎌倉駅を中心に散策をしました。天気が良すぎて熱中症になりそうになりながら水分を取って注意しながら回りました。
大きなお寺です。参拝して御朱印を、頂きに行きましたが、お寺の御朱印と七福神の御朱印を両方頂こうとしたら一回で一つという事で七福神を頂きました。
初めて言われました。
また訪問してしたいと思います。

          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.
