Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, Kamakura

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.

  • After a long time of Kamakura. This is the cherry blossom season, many cherry trees bloom in the precincts. Hachiman-gu shrine often seen in the photo is real and in a solemn mood. In other seasons, different precincts but would come back again, because I think you can see.

  • To see the cherry blossoms in Kamakura Tsuruoka Hachiman shrine went to family. When I went to cherry blossom sightseeing spot, Kamakura is a recommended place for family. It is very spacious, large shrine. This is a good place higher up on the stairs, and Mairi.

  • We wanted to see a temple in the late afternoon with the cherry blossoms. We were rewarded, and we were lucky enough to attend a traditional marriage.
