‘Shrine of SAMURAI ’
TSURUGAOKA HACHIMANGU shrine is one of the most popular tourist spots in Kamakura, 50-55 minutes train from Tokyo.
It’s founded 1063 by MINAMOTO samurai family, deeply worshipped as a ‘God of victory’ by samurais in east part of Japan after samurai shogunate government established in Kamakura 1192.
The front approach is the cute cherry tree-lined road following the road from the beach of Kamakura.
It’s very beautiful in April.
There are 2 beautiful ponds with flowers both sides of the approach too .
You can see the nice view of Kamakura city from the main gate .
There are many romantic stories in this shrine, dance stage of the widow of samurai, 2 ponds of opponents, lucky stones etc..
