Fodor's Review

In the Five Mountains hierarchy, Jochi-ji (Jochi Temple) was ranked fourth. The buildings now in the complex are reconstructions; the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 destroyed the originals. The garden here is exquisite. Jochi-ji is on the south side of the railway tracks, a few minutes' walk farther southwest of Tokei-ji in the direction of Kamakura.

Sight Information


Turn right off the main road (Rte. 21) and cross over a small bridge; a flight of moss-covered steps leads up to the temple., 1402 Yama-no-uchi, Kamakura, Kanagawa-ken, 247-0062, Japan
