Besides watching Buddha, this is also a must visit point in Kamakura. Suggested tourists also look out from the terrace to enjoy the seaview Sagami Bay.

Everyone comes here for the budda - but this is a must see site. Lots of stairs / walking - as it is on the hill side. You get great view of the town and the ocean. Interesting history and architecture.

Just a short walk from the Great Buddha, this temple complex is quite beautiful. A pond, cherry trees everywhere, statuary in abundance, and temple buildings and buddhas. One gets a good view of the Pacific Ocean from walking up the trail in the complex. Easily...More

This is an impressive temple and also has a mini temple inside a cave in the side of the cliff. So, make sure you do not miss this cave.

確か入りぐち、向かって右側に置いてあるのを見かけました。 しかし、中は階段が非常に多く、授乳室などはありません。 ただ、由比ヶ浜が見える展望台の奥の方にレストランがありますので そこのトイレなどで、授乳などができるかもしれません。 どうぞよろしくお願いいたします。
