It was a hot day a few days after the typhoon. We planned to go hiking when autumn came, but the typhoon damage this year occurred in Kamakura too, so all hiking trails were closed because there were fallen trees and such.
We walked around and were worried that the plants in temples and shrines would be damaged. Fragrant olives were in season, so there was a fragrance here and there.
The two types of Japanese anemones were blooming in Jochiji Temple where we went first.
The Japanese anemones in the courtyard of the main hall were in the shade. Their purplish-red color looks better without shade.
The white Japanese anemones in front of the Shoin (study room) bloomed quietly.
Next, we went to Kenchoji Temple.
About two years ago, there were many Persicaria capitatas on both sides of the Hansobo (protecting shrine of Kenchoji Temple) entrance path, like a pink carpet, but those had not bloomed since then because a gardener weeded too much.
We were able to see Mt. Fuji very well. It hid in the clouds after a while.
After that, we went through Kamegayatsuzaka Kiridoshi Pass and went ahead to Kaizoji Temple.
The gentians started to bloom in Kaizoji Temple, so many avid photographers were there. The aster tataricuses and the Japanese anemones were in season.
We had lunch at Blue Room on Komachi-dori Street. This restaurant was not Kamakura-ish because it was on the second floor in the miscellaneous building, but craft beers and the hearth-baked pizzas were delicious.
