Inamuragasaki, Kamakura

4.1
Inamuragasaki is a cape at the western end of Yuigahama (Beach) in Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The cape divides Yuigahama from Shichirigahama (Beach) and Enoshima. Its name seems to stem from its shape, similar to a stack of rice at harvest time (an inamura). At its foot on the Shichirigahama side there is a park, the Inamuragasaki Park.HistoryBecause the ancient Tōkaidō highway passed along the sea south of this cape before heading to the Miura Peninsula, before the opening of the Gokuraku Pass Inamuragasaki was the traditional point of entry to Kamakura at the time of the Kamakura shogunate. Now crossed by a road (see photo), it used to be impassable by land and was therefore one of the natural defenses that made Kamakura an impregnable fortress.For this reason, it appears often in the historical record. It is first mentioned in the Genpei Jōsuiki because the Miura clan in 1180 crossed it twice to go rescue Minamoto no Yoritomo at the battle of Ishibashiyama. The troops didn't arrive in time, Yoritomo was defeated and the Miura had to go back the way they had come.The cape then appears in the Kaidōki because its author in 1223 passed it to enter Kamakura. Inamuragasaki is also mentioned in the Azuma Kagami, the Man'yōshū, the Heike Monogatari and the Taiheiki, although the first two call it with its old name, Mikoshinosaki.

  • Wake up to cycling since I was in elementary school, from a young age in love where a Shonan ever bicycle, car, train and dozens of times I could place hundreds of times and say, this is the place, but actually not memorable inamuragasaki is, so for the first time went! Lol, of course and is a route in the next passage is the car and parking the city also felt similar to this place I shy away from something, somehow Hawaii location in a very nice place and doing it again! It is recommended.
