We saw beautiful holy plaques at Kencho-ji Buddhist temple after a hike in the forest of Kamakura during the Golden Week. Our photo below shows plaques decorated with Jizo (Buddhist protector of travellers and children) on the left and a tengu (protector from Japanese folk religion) on the right:
Our travel manager made many lovely 1-day trips to Kamakura from Tokyo with small groups. Contact us if you wish to visit or hike in Kamakura during your stay in Tokyo this Spring; we can organize a personalized 1-day tour or 2-day tour with hotel in Kamakura.
Would you buy a wooden plaque as souvenir or suspend it at the temple after writing a prayer on it during your travel in Japan?
- Kamakura on Yes in Japan.
- Kencho-ji = 建長寺, Kamakura = 鎌倉.
