Beatrice Lane Suzuki (1878-1939) was a very well informed and sensitive expositor of Mahayana Buddhism and the American wife of the well-known Zen Buddhist Suzuki Daisetsu. She lived in Japan for many years and came to know the leading temple centres of various Buddhist schools - especially in Kyoto and Kamakura - very well. Buddhist Temples of Kyoto and Kamakura brings together some of her writings from The Eastern Buddhist. The collection preserves valuable information from Suzuki's own times and the charm of her personal discovery of the temples described here. Further information is also provided to place them in their current context. The volume will be of interest to scholars of Japanese Buddhism and to the many travelers to these sites today.
