  • 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.

  • Just after leaving Egara Shrine head back down the street for a few hundred meters and you'll come to a playground. Straight ahead is where the remains of Yoritomo lie. From the top the view is beautiful.
  • One of my favorite places to visit when I come to Kamakura. A place of historical significance that might not be that interesting to others.
  • The grave of Japan's first Shogun. A must for history geeks!
  • The tomb of master carpenter of Genji of the Kamakura Bakufu shogunate. Yoritomo's death the the Lok Ma Chau theories, such as the cause of death is still unknown.

  • At a short distance from tsurugaoka hachimangu shrine. Very cemetery is located high on the slopes without the extra steps. Plus because the grass was not so much a summer insect many unlikely to occur. I thought as well as Genji Park redevelopment was necessary. 11/23/2017 first visit
