Jochiji temple




Once you enter the alley from the bus street, you can see a temple full of nature. This is Jochiji. Jochiji is a temple that was built in 1281.

In this temple, there are 2 highlights. First, we enshrined fortune god. His name is Hotei. He is a member of “Kamakura Shichihukujin”. They’re the seven gods who have been faith in Japan as bringing happiness. You can touch the statue of Hotei, and pray.

Second, there are many plants in this temple. Different flowers bloom beautiful depending on the each season. And there are Japanese garden and little bamboo glove, so you can feel Japanese culture.

Kamakuragu is a shrine that built in 1869 by the emperor Meiji and a brave prince of the fourteenth century is enshrined. This shrine also has a lot of nature.

There are many funny things. First is “Yakuwari ishi”. It is the one to remove the misfortune by throwing the dish that breathed it to the stone and dividing. Second is “Nade Migawarisama”. When you go the place, you can see the statue of Samurai. If you pat the same place of the statue where your body is bad, he will be a substitute and heal you. Both of them are very interesting, so there are popular among local people. You should try them!

In addition, there have a place to break. You can spend not only fun time but also refresh time in there.

There is a very beautiful place… In there, you can meet a lot of rare jellyfishes. And, the projection mapping is done several times in a day here!

How is this introduction? Kamakura and Enoshima are famous tourist spot, but there are many spot where we don’t know. Both of the two places are not so far from Tokyo and you can go easily. So, it’s good not to go the place where I introduced but to find new discoveries while walking.
