I love Houkokuji Temple because it's got the best bamboo forest outside Kyoto. It is of complete serenity. And the best part is that Hokokuji is only 1.5h away from Tokyo. This is by far my most favorite temple in Kanto area.
The temple itself was established in 1334, and is only a short bus ride from Kamakura. It is such an escape, that I would recommend anyone to pay a visit if they are in the Kamakura area. You can purchase a version of the entry pass which includes homemade green tea that you can enjoy drinking in the bamboo forest.
