Zuisen-ji

imageZuisen-ji, tucked away in the hills northeast of Kamakura Station, is famous for its gardens.

It’s not so old compared to other Kamakura temples, having been founded in 1327, but it is one of the more important temples nonetheless what with its close association with members of the Muromachi Shogunate.

Zuisen-ji is also on the Kamakura Thirty-Three Kannon Pilgrimage (not to be confused with the Bando Sanjusankasho which takes pilgrims to 33 Kannon in the Kanto area), one of several special ways to tour the city (Seven Lucky Gods, Thirteen Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, etc.).
