We are living in a fast-forward, non-stop flow of information, with too many authorities demanding instant responses. 


Overwhelmed by the fast-paced world, we often cannot take time to enjoy the present.  Instead of feeling, we think. 


Kamakura Mind offers you a moment to focus on yourself by immersion in the art, nature and culture in Kamakura, in the midst of a forest dotted with Zen temples. 


The sign hanging on the gate of Jochiji Temple in Kita-Kamakura reads “Houshozaikin”(宝所在近)which means “treasure is closer than you think.”

Take the time to discover the treasure within yourself. 


Back to Kamakura, Back to Yourself
