  • Perilla pattern Tenjin (quality point shrine), in the middle of Kamakura Palace and Tomb of Yoritomo shrine is. Here is there alongside the Kitano Tenman-gu shrine, Dazaifu tenmangu shrine, which honours the God of learning, the crowded entrance exam season. This shrine, through the first gate (?) Is a pass through to the unseasoned wood. Then a red Torii Gates line, climbing stairs, is the environment after passing under the gate. In front of the shrine main shrine, right in the Gingko, hand back possible. Is within the very narrow and condensed variety, there have been.

Where to stay in Kamakura

Given the easy access from Tokyo via a number of public transport options, the vast majority of visitors to Kamakura choose to stay in the capital and head here for a day trip. If you feel there's too much to see in one day, then you'll be pleased to find a decent selection of accommodations in Kamakura itself. Down by the sea sit perhaps the most luxurious of the crop, with sea views high on the list of desires for those who stay here. Follow the river as it snakes inland past the train station, and you'll see a good number of more standard hotels, as well as particularly budget-friendly guesthouses.
