Kenchoji was the first of the five Zen temples created in Kamakura. Founded in 1253 by Hojo Tokiyori, Kenchoji is not as large in size as it was considered to be at the time but is still an important temple in Kamakura. Kenchoji's temple bell has been designated as a national treasure. Visitors can enter the temple and follow its paths to the Hansobo, a shrine built for the protection of Kenchoji. Walking even further, you can get an amazing view of the temple grounds from the second observation deck.
Kamakura is a treasure trove of eccentric temples and interesting shrines.
