Meigetsuin is a Zen temple in Kamakura in harmony with nature. Composed of two gardens, one zen dry garden in front and a strolling garden in back. Meigetsuin is well-known for the many hydrangea in bloom in June, and vivid maples leaves in autumn. According to 350-year-old records Meigetsuin was originally just the guest house of a much bigger Zenko-ji Temple which was closed by the government during the Meiji period and is all that remains of the formerly important temple.
