Hasedera temple in Kamakura, Kanagawa prefecture

Another stop in Kamakura was at Hasedera temple. It was not my favorite rustic type of temples, but s a very nice temple to visit. The garden was carefully maintained and beautiful. It was a little earlier for the season of Hydrangea, but I found many different plants, so the garden will be enjoyed throughout the year round, from season to season. The garden was not only the feature of Hasedera. It had some other things to see and enjoy. There were the huge statues of Kannon and Amida, a path in the trees you can stroll around, a nice looking café, and a cave with many Buddha statues. The admission was 300 yen.
