Kamakura 4 Jochiji temple 15/04/2013

A short walk along the side of the railway at Kita-kamakura bought me to the third temple I would visit on my day trip. I chose this as it was also the start of a hiking trail I wanted to try.
Jochiji Temple wasn't as lush and green as the other two, it was carved partly into cliffs giving it a rocky feel. There were little caves and tunnels and statues sheltering under cliffs . Some large bamboo trees were sprouting up here and there to add to the stranger shadowy feel of the place.
There were still some lovely gardens and buildings in the open areas as a contrast to the darker corners.
