Jōmyō-ji  (浄妙寺)

Founded in 1188, this Rinzai Zen temple is number 5 of the Kamakura Zen temples. The Kamakura branch of the Ashikaga family, the main powerholders in the Muromachi period, made it their family temple.

The Kisan-an, a tea house restored in recent years, is open to visitors. From the veranda, you can enjoy the view on the zen garden while having a bowl of matcha.

Special in this temple is the shape of the roof of the main hall. In our eBook you will learn more about the different Japanese roof shapes.
