Engaku-ji is a Zen temple built in 1282 by Hojo Tokimune to pray for the repose of the souls of fallen soldiers in the Mongol Invasion. Located further in the temple grounds in Shozoku-in is Shari-den, the only building in Kanagawa to be designated as National Treasure. It is usually not open to public, except during the three days of New Year and around November 3 every year. The Zazen mediation is open to public and Natsume Soseki and Shimazaki Toson, both popular Japanese authors, had once participated in the session. The main gate is located in JR Kita-Kamakura Station.
