About
With a nationally-licensed and experienced multilingual tour guide, this short but value-packed trip is a fantastic way of experiencing Kamakura! Tsurugaoka Hachimangu is arguably Kamakura's most important shrine. Originally built in 1063 and moved to its present location in 1191, this tour is a can't-miss opportunity to explore and get in touch with the city's rich spiritual history. Your nationally-licensed and experienced English-speaking guide will be able to provide views of Japan that most tourists do not usually get to see. Tsurugaoka Hachimangu is located in the center of Kamakura and is easily accessible on foot from Kamakura Station. On the way there, you can also enjoy some shopping along the bustling Komachi-dori shopping street, home of Kamakura's main gift and souvenir stores. Note*1: The Nationally-licensed Tour Guide-Interpreter certification is issued by the Japanese government requires a good knowledge and understanding of Japanese culture and history.

    Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine
    Stop: 60 minutes
    Tsurugaoka Hachimangu is arguably Kamakura's most important shrine. If you’re planning on really getting in touch with the city’s rich spiritual history you can’t miss the opportunity to explore this incredibly lively but still peaceful pocket of Kamakura. The site was originally founded in 1063 by Minamoto Yoriyoshi, who was a head of Japan's Minamoto clan and is most famous for leading the Imperial forces against rebellious forces in the north, alongside his son Minamoto no Yoshiie during the 1050s. Later in 1180 the shrine was enlarged and moved to its current location by the founder and first shogun of the Kamakura government, Minamoto Yoritomo.
