Words-and-Pictures: Engakuji

Note: This selection of Words-and-Pictures was made on September 8, 2001, as I walked on the Old Tokaido.

Engakuji is located in Kamakura in Kanagawa Prefecture. Kamakura is a sidetrip off of the Old Tokaido between Kanagawa (now Yokohama) and Hodogaya, Stations 3 and 4 (from Tokyo.) You can read about my visit to Engakuji in my Logbook for that day.

 The great main gate

 The hondo (main hall), where I stood...

...before the Buddha and...

...said my prayers. (Tom took the picture; he and Yuka were amused by the looks I got as I chanted in bad Japanese.)

This monk helped us find the stamp office.

Three shots...

...of Engakuji's...

...magnificent atmosphere.

Here's a Wikipedia article about Engakuji.
