It is a surprise that there is a quiet temple so wide but not far from Kamakura Station.
Myohonji’s Sanmon is located north of Joei-ji. From Kamakura station, enter the side road of Kamakura Post Office, then go a little beyond the Namerikawa river.
Passing the first gate and go visiting the road, there is a second gate, Niten-mon (Gate of two heavenly kings). The gate has two of four heavenly kings, Jikoku-ten and Tamon-ten, the so-called Niten-mon. Niten-mon just repaired and colored bright red. There is a Soshi-do (Founder’s Hall), which is one of the largest wooden buildings in Kamakura. This hall is really big and impressive.
A cat lives around the hall. Many people take pictures of the cat. You can see many pictures of the cat by google image search.
The main hall is not here but is located on the left side of the first gate.
