Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, Kamakura

(4.2/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine and other attractions in Kamakura using our Kamakura tour planner.
