Kita-Kamakura, a hub of Zen philosophy

2018年08月01日

Zen lives in Kita-Kamakura, a north area of Kamakura. It was getting along with simple, unaffected Samurai culture when a capital town was located there. Then 5 main Zen temples were authorized and called "Kamakura Gozan". For more details of 5 authorized Zen temples:  https://www.japan-experience.com/city-kamakura/kamakura-zen-temples

You may find archaic Zen and Samurai spirit in those complexes consisting of wooden gate, stone garden and temple.

Now just enjoy a beautiful Japanese summer in Kita-Kamakura.
