Tsurugaoka Hachimangu

In 1063, Minamoto no Yoriyoshi, the founder of Minamoto no Yoritomo, worshiped Iwashimizu Hachimangu in Kyoto on the Yuiga beach. It was relocated to its present location in the era of Yoritomo, and was arranged in the form of both upper and lower shrines. Since then, it has become the basis of the spirit of the samurai family and has been revered from all over the country as a god of national protection. Both the main shrine and Wakamiya are designated as national important cultural properties, and together with the Maiden and Dankazura associated with Shizuka Gozen, they are famous as symbols of the ancient city of Kamakura. Today, many worshipers visit throughout the year. <Access> 10 minutes walk from the east exit of "JR Kamakura Station" / 10 minutes walk from "Enoden Kamakura Station"
