Tennyo Cave at Zuisenji-Temple
It is a large cave that opens on a cliff in the beautiful garden of Zuisenji Temple in the depths of Kamakura City. It's huge in width and height. There is a pond in front of the side of this cave (Tennyo-do), and it is a “training cave” where monks sit and meditate facing to this pond. It is designated as a national scenic spot, including the garden. Multiple 'niches' marks remain in the rock wall surrounding this huge cave.
