Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, Kamakura

Welcoming over two million visitors during just one major holiday alone, Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine remains one of Japan's most popular religious sites. The complex contains both a Hachiman shrine (blending elements of Shinto and Buddhism) and a Tendai Buddhist temple, with examples of traditional Japanese architecture. The complex once boasted a 1000-year-old ginkgo tree, destroyed in the 2010 typhoon. An old stone stairway still stands as one of the site's major features.

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.
