HASE DERA has "HASE KAN-NON" as a principal objects of worship. "HASE KAN-NON" is really huge. Her height is 9.18 meters and one of the LARGEST in Japan. Also note that she is made of one gigantic wood, which is unbelievable.

HASE DERA is ONE OF OLDEST temple in Kamakura which is build on AD 736.

Also famous as a beautiful garden. In June, you will see full of AJISAI. But it is very beautiful in other season with seasonal flowers.

Very much well maintained and renovated.
