About Wakamiya Oji
Wakamiya Oji is the main road of Tsuruoka Hachiman Shrine, which is straight and spacious, and was originally built to pray for the safe delivery of Masako Hojo, the wife of Yoritomo Minamoto. The design of the Wakamiya Road is very special, and the “Danko” (stone placement) method was used, which means that the earth and stones were piled up so that the road surface was slightly elevated. In addition, a triple torii was used. Wakamiya-dori is also famous for its cherry blossoms in spring, and is one of the best places to see cherry blossoms in the suburbs of Tokyo.

The so-called Wakamiya Avenue is the Omotesando Road of Tsuruoka Hachiman Shrine, which was built to imitate the Jubilee Street in Kyoto, showing the power of the Kamakura Shogunate. There are many stores, restaurants and eating places on both sides of the road. The road is lined with shops, restaurants and eateries, including an ice cream parlor.
When we were there, we saw a demonstration. I don’t know what the demands were.
The road is more atmospheric, there are a lot of very sweet snacks on both sides, and then see some children are over some special clothes, the day is not 7-5-3 festival.
