Enno-ji is a small temple in Kamakura famous for the sitting statue of Enma daio (Yama in Sanskrit), a Hindu god of death and hell that has fierce facial expression. It worships the Ten Judges of Hell, including Enma Daio in the center, which is believed one will meet in the outerworld after death.
Kencho-ji, the oldest temple in Kanagawa, stands opposite of Enno-ji, which is also worth visiting.
Enno-ji is 15-20 minute on foot from Kita-Kamakura Station on JR Yokosuka Line, opposite of Kencho-ji.
The temple is open from 9:00 to 16:00 (closes 15:00 on December-February). Entrance fee costs 200 yen.
Camera may be prohibited inside the temple buildings.
