Zen Garden at Hase-Dera in Kamakura

長谷寺 (Hase-dera) is a temple in 鎌倉 (Kamakura). It has a beautiful zen garden tucked away behind a wall. I think the surrounding buildings might be monks’ quarters or administrative buildings for the temple. The gate was open the day I visited.

Happy Monks

These cute little stone statues of happy, smiling monks were all over 長谷寺 (Hase-dera).
