78.7 Shomyoji 称名寺 was built by Hojo Sanetoki during the Kamakura period and was the Hojo family temple. The Jodo style pure land garden with Ajiike Pond in front of the main temple is its most unique feature - its arched bridge over the pond is its showcase. The temple's bell was portrayed in the woodblock print Shomyo-no-Bansho one of eight prints depicting views of Kanazawa by Hiroshige Utagawa. Today Shomyoji is no longer part of Kamakura but now officially within Yokohama city limits.
