View of the Enkakuji Temple entrance area from the site of present-day Kita-Kamakura Station. There are two gates facing the street in front of the temple. The one in the background is the southeast gate. The temple is on the other side of the bridge. A "horse road" passes behind the mound on the right. It is possible that commoners were forbidden to use this gate during the Edo Period. The rickshaw in the centre seems to be an early model, indicating that this photograph was taken at the beginning of the Meiji Period.
