Fukugonji Temple Garden is usually overlooked by visitors to the Shonan - Kamakura area. One reason for this is that its main attraction is its garden, which is normally not open to the public except for a peek through the fence. Fukugonji is a temple of the Rinzai sect of Buddhist and its full official name is Tokuniyayama Fukuzenzenji. Behind the gate there is a plaque with the carved info: "May, 2013, Yoshitatsu founding 800th anniversary" which indicates that this is an ancient temple. From the main gate there is a large bell hanging on the second floor. Fukugenzenji was founded during the Muromachi period as the bodhisattva temple of Yoshie Nagae, who was active in this area during the Kamakura period.
