Hasedera Temple


According to legend, this old temple has been here well before the Kamakura period.
The 11-faced Kannon is 9.18 meters tall, and it is one of the largest wooden Buddha statues in Japan. There is an observation platform on the flat area where the Kannon hall is built, overlooks the Kamakura sea, the streets of Hase, and all the way up to the Miura Peninsula.
