Manpuku-ji Temple (満福寺)

A Shingon Daikaku-ji Temple Buddhist temple located in the Koshigoe neighborhood of Kamakura City. The temple was founded in 744 by the priest Gyoki. The temple is known for being the place that Minamoto no Yoshitsune stayed at temporarily when he came to Kamakura to make amends with his brother, Minamoto no Yoritomo, with whom he had been in conflict. Yoshitsune also wrote a letter to his brother during his stay here. Because the temple was located in the Koshigoe area of Sagami Province, this letter is known as the “Koshigoe Letter,” and a rough draft of it is displayed on the temple grounds. The grounds are filled with a variety of other related historic artifacts and sites, such as the pond from which Yoshitsune scooped water to grind the ink for his letter, a stone on which the warrior monk and servant of Yoshitsune Benkei sat, and a stone Benkei lifted to test his strength.

Review of Manpukuji Temple

Reviewed:2019/12/21 源義経さんゆかりのお寺です。
源平の合戦で平家を破り鎌倉に帰ってきた義経を待っていたのは兄、頼朝からの冷たい仕打ち。鎌倉に入ることが出来ず、この腰越の満福寺で足止めをされたのです。そして、兄 頼朝と和解するためにここで腰越城を書き、頼朝の家来、大江広元にとりなしを依頼した、と言われています。江ノ電 腰越駅から歩いてすぐです。非常に便利なところにあります。

Reviewed:2019/07/11 源義経が「腰越状」を書いたところ
「満福寺」をご存じでしょうか? 江ノ電線路沿いにある寺院のひとつで腰越駅から徒歩数分のところにあります。お寺から江ノ電も見えますよ。
創建は744年、源義経が宿所としていた寺院で、兄の頼朝と和解するための手紙である「腰越状」を書かれた場所です。境内にはその姿の碑があります。
歴史深き鎌倉です、寺院とその歴史には繋がりがあります。
Reviewed:2018/12/12 腰越駅から 数分です
江ノ電の腰越駅から 徒歩 5-6分 江ノ電の踏切をわたり、急な坂道を上がったところにあります。何か特徴があるお寺ではありませんが、満福寺境内から七里ヶ浜霊園に抜けるトンネル内が圧巻です。トンネルの壁面には、いろいろな絵が描かれています。 鶴、天女様、龍、 これを見に行くだけでも 此処に来る価値はあると思っています

          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.
