I went to Houkokuji temple in Kamakura that was established in 1334.
Kamakura is a city in Kanagawa Prefecture,once it was a political capital along with Nara and Kyoto.
This temple is famous for the beautiful bamboo garden.
But autumn leaves are also very nice.
The best time to see it is from the end of Nov. to the beginning of Dec. every year.
