Temple Garden

imageEngaku-ji starts where Kita-Kamakura Station ends.

In fact, it used to own the land upon which the station sits, but had to sell it when the railroad went through. The pond beside the station—cut off from the temple grounds by a narrow road—is still part of Engaku-ji, though.

This raked-pebble garden is lovely to look out on, as is the pond and garden across the walk from it.
