Tsurugaoka Hachimangu鶴岡八幡宮


A Hachimangu Shinto shrine which is considered the guardian shrine of Kamakura warriors. The shrine’s origins date back to when Minamoto no Yoriyoshi prayed for protection before setting out for battle at the Iwashimizu Hachimangu in Kyoto, the patron shrine of the Minamoto clan; after successfully suppressing the Northern Fujiwara clan, he built a shrine dedicated to the god of the Kyoto shrine in Yuigahama in thanks. Later, when the Minamoto clan was again ascendant after a period of waning power, the shrine was moved to its current location in the Yukinoshita neighborhood and was rebuilt as a magnificent structure befitting the leaders of the Kamakura shogunate. Connected to the samurai Minamoto clan and the famous Minamoto no Yoritomo, the shrine is still popular today and is considered one of the three greatest Hachimangu shrines. One of the shrines most popular events is the yabusame horseback archery, which is conducted each year in the spring and fall by participants dressed in traditional Kamakura period hunting costumes.

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.
