    Perilla design shrine visit after walking toward the tsurugaoka Hachiman shrine, and "early grave" will Mono had stopped. Knew from a previous existence that had uneven look at from the odour annoyance is until now Weng or other is t, but a look at once as Megan Fox, never mind the climb up the stairs. Of course, families rejected climb the stairs. So going up the stairs alone. It was climbed the steep stairs opened the little square. And in the middle of the square around pagoda shaped like a stone tower. It really, really here sleeping Yoritomo is around and is surrounded by wooded area was located on a hill that is not so, like moyamoya sense of place, perhaps, somehow, it seems was just the atmosphere. Well the Devils only once if even good sense, and feel I guess.

    Steep stairs to the white shrine is on the left. And judged by the Agency for Cultural Affairs from the survey results more likely was the same temple with Minamoto no Yoritomo's grave, in the Official Gazette 1/31/2000 dated "hokkedo (source of the early grave)" and it is.

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.
