Sugimoto-dera Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
A small flight of uneven, mossy steps leads to Sugimoto-dera, the oldest temple in Kamakura (founded in 734). The white banners displaying the names of donors stand out against the green of the abundant foliage. The site exudes charm and peace. You will come across three effigies of Kannon, the compassionate Goddess of Mercy, recognisable by her 11 heads.
