Genji Pond (源氏池)

 0467220315  Kanagawa Pref. Kamakurashi Yukinoshita 2-1-31 Tsuruoka in Hachiman

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.
