Hase-dera

Very close to the train station in Hase (about 10 minutes walk) you will find this wonderful temple dedicated to the bodhisattva of mercy, Kannon. When entering we can find an amazing garden that will excite fans of photography, and even those who aren´t fans. On the way to the main campus you will see many statues dedicated to Jizo, Buddhist protective deity of travelers and unborn children or those who died before their parents. The main enclosure has the largest wooden statue in the country of Japan, a 11-faced Kannon, representing each step to enlightenment. Nearby we have a vantage point where you can have a fantastic view of the city of Kamakura.

Hasedera temple

The Kamakura Hasedera temple is one of the most famous places not only for the building itself, but by the stunning gardens with a thousand and one details that will excite anyone who has a camera with a zoom. There are also many small statues of Buddha with baby clothes that will be funny to see, but has a sad meaning: The statues are placed to protect the soul of a child who died before their parents, so each of them is associated with one of these sad events.
