Another world through a round window – 明月院(Meigetsu-in Temple)

明月院(Meigetsu-in Temple) is a temple near the Kita-Kamakura station. This temple is well-known for its beautiful scenery through a round window. You can see other scenery in each season and it looks like another world.

Also, you can see a beautiful garden of 枯山水(Kare-Sansui), a kind of Japanese rock garden. These rocks explain the water and this static garden make us relaxed.

This temple is not crowded and quiet except the season that hydrangeas are in bloom. There are a lot of squirrels in the garden of the temple and they look so cute.

If you come to near Kamakura and want time to be relaxed, I recommend you to come here and spend a peaceful time.
