Kangetsudo Hall (観月堂)

Other Historic Site/Building

A sub-temple on the precincts of Kotokuin Temple, home of the Great Buddha of Kamakura and the 23rd stop among the 33 sites sacred to the Bodhisattva Kannon. It was reportedly built at the Korean Royal Palace in Hanyang in the middle of the 15th century. In 1924 it was moved from the private residence of Kisei Sugino in Meguro, Tokyo and donated to the temple. The president of Yamaichi Goshi Gaisha (later Yamaichi Securities), he owned it at that time. Currently, Kangetsudo enshrines an image of the Bodhisattva Kannon thought to date from the late Edo period.

          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.
