****** Meigetsuin *****



How to get to Meigetsuin (from Kitakamakura Station)
Go along the new road. You will see Engakuji on your left side. Keep going and you will come to the point of the left photo, then make a left. It is about 15-20 minutes walk from Kitakamakura St.



Meigetsuin was founded by Uesugi Norikata in 14c. Meigetsuin is a rather small temple compared to Engakuji and Kenchoji. But it is famous for its hydrangeas. The temple is full of hydrangea flowers in June. Irises are also beautifull.
