Beautiful trees surround this area with the enormous Buddha and many shrines. I've been there when the cherry blossom is out. Stunning! It's a peaceful place where you can slow down and contemplate. You can buy small, inexpensive "blessings" and "charms" for family and friends.
I would recommend getting off at the Kita-Kamakura train station. The shrine is a very short walk from there. The shrine is beautiful and very historic. The complex has numerous buildings and gardens and there is a small entrance fee.
It was so peaceful and quiet. The scenic beauty was just mind blowing. You feel like you are in paradise. The gift shop is recommended for souvenirs. This place is highly recommended for nature lovers.
