A hidden gem, this complex of temples and shrines nestled under ancient cedars on the mountainside is a really atmospheric oasis of tranquility. Every visitor I have brought here has fallen in love with the place and are surprised it is not more famous (my last guests from Italy thought it worthy of UNESCO world heritage status!) and crowded (often no more than a handful of visitors when I go there). I honestly believe it is one of the best places to visit in Kanagawa. Be aware that there are a lot of steps, especially a very long steep flight up the mountainside if you want to go up to the small temple right at the top of the complex (in my opinion really not worth it unless you enjoy the exercise).

Literally one of my favourite places in the world. Temples scattered on the hillside among soaring cedar trees and an assortment of streams and water features. Beautiful in any season, but especially autumn for the colourful leaves. Similarly stunning in heavy rain and when covered in snow

Stunningly beautiful in autumn with maple trees all around! The best temple I have ever visited in Japan, next to Kyoto. This temple has it all. Lots of steps and climbing. It is good to do a little research before coming here because there is so much here.
