Loved to walk through the cool forest and visit the temple complex amidst the hot humid weather of mid August. Relaxing and cool. Unfortunately part of the Bamboo forest and Cafe were closed for a function. Still a worthwhile walk and plenty of photo opportunities....More
Look. Any other time of year, visiting Meigetsuin is a quiet affair. There aren't too many people, there's a lot of green, and it feels peaceful.
But when you go during rainy season and thus, hydrangea season, you can go super early on a Monday...More
Located close to city center, this somewhat hidden park represents an oasis of tranquility and serenity. As you enter the gate, you cross a little bridge and scend towards the garden, a few dozen feet above street level. By the time you reach the first...More
You can enjoy beautiful hydrangeas in June. However, there are many many people. Another 500yen is required to enter the special garden, besides the entrance fee.

First of all the entry fee is 500 yen which is one of the highest in Kamakura and Japan, respectively. Second, the garden is relatively small since there are "no-entry"-sights everywhere. You can't go there, not there, not there...it is ridiculously. Third, they asked for...More
We visited many, many enjoyable shrines on our day trip to Kamakura - but this was one of the special ones. There's lots to see and explore - too much to write in this short review. But to typify our experience, we very much appreciated...More
Meigetsu-in Temple is known for its hydrangeas, so it is, of course, very crowded when they are in bloom. We traveled there the last week of July. It was quite beautiful, but after a while, I just needed to leave to escape the crowds. Beautiful...More
