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.

  • If you go up the steep stairs and pass through the large torii gate, you will find Hachiman-sama. It is crowded with foreigners, tourists, and families. There are several national treasure sashiins in front of the paid treasure hall, and it is spectacular.

  • There were a lot of people as expected. There was a small child of Shichigosan, too, and it was very pretty. The beautiful scarlet color was very impressive. I can't get to the longer stairs.
