One good temple with long path to walk before reaching the temple. On the day that I visited, there are some small kiosk selling fruits and bakery along the pathway. It’s enjoyable.

We enjoyed walking to the Shrine through the main streets of Kamakura. There are so many interesting shops and restaurants! The Peony and Azalea area was definitely worth the price of admission! A must!
