Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, Kamakura

4.2
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.

  • 3/19 to visit sky Monday morning was relatively crowd less leisurely visit more than now. Security guards to search yesterday seems to have been in the crowded crowded, day of the week. Bad weather is part of the precinct entrance bridge and on the flag in the Sarasvati cherry anymore in scattered spring coming made us feel. Early morning weren't approach nor the grand staircase, it's nice. I don't think you can come early in the morning, I got up early.

  • It was while Buri tsurugaoka hachimangu shrine. Weather was good in the shrine after the visit, from the side of the main urayama took a walk. Never in the Hachiman-gu shrine gone ever took about an hour, but it can see them clearly. Trail was crowded, walking slowly. Squirrel went several times up to now, but until now always the eyes I see once I had a little lonely.

  • JR Kamakura station went 10-minute walk from tsurugaoka hachimangu shrine close by. So I went around noon Sunday to worshippers were a lot. Given the tourists from overseas. Plum blossoms of the shrine in bloom here. Japan garden, enjoyed taking photographs. Visitors to the Sanctuary are given 30-it is recommended you watch 60 minutes. During our visit to the main hall to hit about 10 minutes.
