Genji Pond源氏池

Wetland / Marshland

Records state that Genji Pond, located on the grounds of Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, was once a rice field called Tsurumakida that was converted into a pond on the order of Minamoto no Yoritomo in 1182. It is said that Genji Pond once bloomed with white lotuses, while Heike Pond bloomed with red lotuses. Today, however, both red and white lotuses bloom in profusion on Genji Pond.

Kanagawa Main Areas

around-area-map

Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo’s most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
