Meigetsuin Temple

The Temple is located only 5 minutes by foot from Kita-Kamakura station. The flower that makes this Temple famous is the hydrangea. Over one thousand hydrangeas are in full bloom during the rainy season from mid-June to mid-July. As the Temple is very crowded on weekends during this period, visiting on weekdays is recommended. The Temple has a dry landscape garden with sand, rocks and trees. Unlike Kyoto, Kamakura has only three temples with a dry landscape garden. Among these three, this temple’s garden is considered the most attractive.
