Shomyo-ji and Imaizumi-fudo is located near Imaizumi-fudo Bus Stop, which is 20 minutes from Ofuna Station. It is just back side of Kita-Kamakura station, but there is a hill between Kita-Kamakura and Imaizumi, so they're using Ōfuna Station.

It is inconvenient place and Shomyo-ji and Imaizumi-fudo is not so big temple, so there are few people to go there. I don't recommend specially to go, but if you have a chance to go Sanzaigaike (aka Kamakura-ko), it is good idea to go Shomyo-ji and Imaizumi-fudo.

Going up the hill and entering the precinct, there is statue of Seishimaru, it is a childhood name of Honen Shonin who opened Jodo-shu.

Passing the Hondo which is in the renovation, going up the stairs, there is Imaizumi-fudo. If you're going down to right side, there is waterfall named Onmyo no taki. There are two falls, which are greater than expected.

Back from waterfalls, going up the stairs covered with moss, there is Imaizumi-fudo. There is statue of thirty-six children and Dainiti-Nyorai.

There are many attractions and quiet and nice place.
