Highlights near Kamakura

Under the Microscope

A circular doorway leading into Meigetsu-in temple in Kita-kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, is part of a temple founded in 1383 and belonging to the Rinzai sect of Buddhism. On the grounds there is a gorgeous Japanese rock garden with lines and curves raked into the sand daily by the monks, and hydrangeas that bloom in early summer.
