Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, Kamakura

(4.2/5 based on 1,000+ 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.

  • 乘坐江之島電鐵去到鐮倉站,沿著小町通行一段路就到鶴岡八幡宮範圍,到訪那天周圍都很多人,還有大型祭祀慶典和祈福活動,第一次現場參觀這些儀式,無論他們的服飾和神態都顯出日本人對神社宗教的尊敬和重視,行上一條長長的樓梯,便進入八幡宮,參拜和買御守的人很多,簡直水洩不通,十分熱鬧,從樓梯頂俯瞰的風景,十分壯觀,沿著出口有很多特色小食攤檔,旁邊還有一個荷花池,池邊也有神社,夏天長滿荷花應該會更美.....  more »
