Travel Guide - Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine

InformationInformation

Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine was established in Kamakura by Minamoto-no-Yoriyoshi in 1063. Then the shrine was moved to the present location in 1180 by Minamoto-no-Yoritomo, who later established the Shogunate Government in Kamakura and became the first Kamakura Shogun. As a symbol of Kamakura, Tsurugaoka Hachimangu has attracted many visitors since then.
On its grounds are many interesting sights including Shrine Museum Peony Garden, and the Great Gingko. The tree fell down in 2010, but now, many sprouts are visible emerging form its stump. 60 stone steps lead up to the main shrine, which offers views over Kamakura City.
