Big Bell

imageThis impressive bell was made in 1301, and sits on a hill at the top of a rather long set of stone steps at Engaku-ji.

Engaku-ji is the second of the five great Zen temples in Kamakura. Its entrance is right at Kita-Kamakura Station (apparently, it lost some of its land in order for the train line and station to be built), and it’s expansive as well as beautiful.
