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.

Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine reviews
It is beautiful and the town leading up to it is so engaging and active! Went on a Monday morning and it was perfect! The shrine is immaculate and there are signs to show you how to be respectful. more »
This beautiful shrine and extensive grounds are a must see part of any visit to Kamakura. I live locally and have been here many times, but it still has a magic to it. About 10 minutes walk from the..... more »
Located a 10-minute walk from JR Kamakura Station, this shrine has a long history. At the entrance of the shrine, there is a very large tori-i gate, which is sure to overwhelm anyone who sees... more »
Great place, but visiting on roasting hot mid-august is not a great idea
A place you should visit at least once when you come to Kamakura. The view overlooked from the temple grounds is worth a visit. The lotus flowers are beautiful in July ✨
I can see why this is one of the most visited temples in a city that is filled with temples. The architecture is beautiful and it's really a complex of temples and shrines that shows a fun blend of Budhism and Shintoism.
This shrine is beautiful. It's large and has a very large complex it is located on with several other things to see and do and smaller shrines. The approach to it from one side has a tree-lined sidewalk path that winds through a busy street with tons of shopping and eating and small lion and dragon statues. It's very pretty, very old, and has a very real sense of calm around the whole place.
You get a beautiful view of the city from the top. Majestic.
