Yoga at moss temple in Kamakura on April 28, 2024

Enjoy yoga in the temple where beautiful moss and flowers blooming

Myohoji Temple is also called the moss temple. The spacious grounds include a carefully maintained garden with trees and flowers, beautiful moss stairs, and a small hill with a great view. There is a quiet atmosphere here that is different from the area around Kamakura Station.

Beautiful gardens fascinate visitors regardless of the season, but did you know that there is also a time when moss can be seen most beautifully? According to the chief priest, the moss is at its best around Golden Week, when fresh new buds appear and white chaga flowers bloom on both sides of the stairs.
The flower situation varies from year to year, so I hope to see beautiful moss and shaga moss this Golden Week.

Yoga instructor:naomi


We hold yoga together at temples and beaches in Kamakura. While working as a yoga instructor mainly in Shonan and Kamakura, she is usually a mother of two children.

This is a yoga class at my favorite temple, Myohoji Temple. In addition to the moss stairs, the temple welcomes you with many trees and flowers throughout the year, so please enjoy yoga and the temple as well.
