      A path through the bamboo provides a lovely experience that is a page out of the everyday.
      Passing through the Sanmon gate and ascending the stone steps to the right, one finds the main worship hall, where a statue of the seated Shakyamuni is enshrined. To the right of the main hall is the Kassapa Hall, and to the left is a bell tower with a traditional thatched roof.

      Tokei-ji Temple

      This is a temple of the Rinzai Buddhist Enkaku-ji Temple school that was founded in 1285.
      In the feudal era, it was impossible for a woman to file for divorce, but this temple offered a method whereby one could seek refuge here and spend two years in convent life in order to be declared divorced. The temple played a role for 600 years in saving women from oppressive marriages.

      Today, it is a male monastery, but the temple retains traces of its former use as a nunnery. There you will find a range of lovely plants like plum and cherry trees, irises, gentian, and other flora.

      Kencho-ji Temple

      Kencho-ji Temple was Japan’s first full-fledged temple dedicated to the pursuit of Zen Buddhism.
      In 1253, Hojo Tokiyori, fifth regent to the Kamakura Shogunate, invited Lanxi Daolong to become the first priest of the temple, and it became the first of the five Kamakura Zen temples.

      Located within a deep valley, it houses items like a temple bell that is a national treasure, as well as architecture designated important cultural properties. The dignity of the site remains well into the present.

      Kencho-ji was originally founded as an ascetic dojo for monks in training. At its peak, over 1,000 monks lived and trained here.
      They eventually fanned out across Japan and promoted the Zen culture and mindset. One item that inherits these traditions is “kenchin-jiru,” a form of tofu and vegetable chowder.
      As it turns out, this everyday soup consumed in most homes traces its roots to Kencho-ji Temple.
      Today, many people visit the temple year-round.

      Minatonomieru ‐Oka Park

      The observation deck in this park offers views of the bay and the Yokohama Bay Bridge.
      This area retains the appearance it did when the port was first opened and acted as a settlement for foreign national in Japan. There are sites where British and French troops were stationed, respectively at the top and bottom of the hill.
      The French mountain district is where the French consulate general was located. The Yokohama British House was where the British Consulate General was housed. A range of cultural facilities have continued to open here since that time, such as the Osaragi Jiro Memorial Museum in 1978 and the Kanagawa Museum of Modern Literature in 1984.

      Also in 1984, a bridge opened as a link between the Yokohama Doll Museum and the French mountain. In October of 1986, Mutekibashi Bridge opened as a link between the Osaragi Jiro Memorial Museum and the Kanagawa Museum of Modern Literature. It, like those buildings, was designed by architect Shizutaro Urabe.
