Going into the countryside on the road which goes right side of Kamakura Gu, there is Zuisen-ji. Precincts are large and rich in nature, and blooming flowers are very nice. Few tourists come here because it’s far from town.
Precincts are designated as a national historic site.
There is a garden in the back of the main hall, which is the work of the founder, Muso Kokushi. It is hard to see the gardens of the Kamakura period.
Jizo called “Dokomo-ku-jizo” is enshrined in Jizo-do. The Jizo-do was located in Oogigayatsu before. When Domori (jizo-do keeper) tried to escape due to his poverty, Jizo appeared in a dream and said to him, “everywhere, everywhere” (The world is painful everywhere). The name Dokomo-ku-jizo is derived from this story. “Dokomo-ku” means that everywhere is painful.
