About Tsuruoka Hachimangu Shrine
Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine (Tsurugaoka Hachimangu) is a shrine dedicated to the god Hachiman in Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.
In 1063, the year after the end of the first nine years of the war, Yoriyoshi Minamoto requested Ishimizu Hachimangu Shrine in Yamashiro (Kyoto Prefecture) to establish Hachimangu Shrine in Tsurugaoka, Yubi Township, Kamakura, and in 1180 (the fourth year of Jisei), Yoritomo Minamoto entered Kamakura and moved the shrine to its present location, which was called Tsurugaoka Wakamiya, and Hachimangu became the patron deity of the Minamoto clan. The Shogunate built the main shrine on the hill behind Wakamiya and rebuilt Wakamiya again.
Since then, Hachimanjin has been revered as the guardian of the Musemon.

Hit the landmark! You can go inside if you pass by! There happened to be people getting married inside at the time.
A large temple on a small hill, a lot of people, but actually there is nothing to see, the building is not as good as Asakusa Temple
Sento should be newly built, very long and very new, in the middle of the road in a straight line to reach, the environment is very good, Zhu Yin is also very beautiful.
The long path with high steps is spectacular, but after the gatehouse, there is really nothing special inside.
The shrine with a lot of tourists is near Kamakura station, but it’s not much.
The place where the town path almost ends, there is a place like a kindergarten inside, many children
