Definitely one of my favorite places that we went to in Kamakura, Hasedera temple had a special event going on while we were there. They lit up the temple as well as many of the trees and their beautiful fall leaves. The atmosphere all around the temple was dream-like with the calming blue lights illuminating the temple grounds. There is also an amazing Kannon (goddess of mercy) statue in one of the temples halls. Sadly, filming or pictures of this amazing gilded wooden statues is strictly prohibited, but definitely worth experiencing in person.
In the autumn, Hasedera Temple is a great place to check out the fall leaves. They even have a event where they illuminate the autumn leaves and the temple. And seeing how it's really close to the Big Buddha in Kamakura, it's worth checking out while your in the area. But be warned, during the fall months, the place gets pretty packed.

Hasedera is located a five minute walk from Hase Station, the third station from Kamakura along the Enoden railway line. The Enoden is a streetcar-like train that connects Kamakura with Enoshima and Fujisawa. Its terminal station in Kamakura is located just next of JR Kamakura Station.
