Kosokuji Temple Œυ‘₯Ž›

It was not built as a temple. Originally, it was a house of a Kamakura Samurai named Œυ‘₯ (Mitsunori). He confined a Buddhist priest in a dungeon on his premise by the Regent Hojo's order.  Somehow he had that priest open a temple at his house, then it was named from the letter of his name, Kosoku. That dungeon is now open to the public.

 

Goryo-jinja Shrine Œδ—μ_ŽΠ

This shrine also has an old story related to a Kamakura Samurai, that is Gongoro.  I would like recommend the walking route from Kosoku-ji to the side-entrance of Goryo-jinja.  It goes a small, quiet alley from which we can see the top of Hasedera temple's roof.  I hope that you could feel the ancient Kamakura while walking along this route.

 

Beach

Returning to in front of our restaurant and keep going straight, you will reach Yuigahama beach soon.  A walk along the beach would be good when the weather is nice.

 

Walking

Temple tours, seaside or mountain walk, Gourmet tour, any of them is nice in Kamakura.  Depending on the weather, I think it would be good to see around both tourist-spots and nature.  Going to Sasuke Inari through a hiking trail from the great Buddha would be one of the good choices.  There are some points where the ground is slippery and a little bit steep slopes.  So, you had better refrain from trying it soon after the rain.
