Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kanto / Kanagawa Prefecture / Kamakura / Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine
Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine remains one of Japan's most popular religious sites. The complex contains both a Hachiman shrine (blending elements of Shinto and Buddhism) and a Tendai Buddhist temple, with examples of traditional Japanese architecture. The complex once boasted a 1000-year-old ginkgo tree, destroyed in the 2010 typhoon. An old stone stairway still stands as one of the site's major features. Put Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine and other Kamakura attractions into our Kamakura trip itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine reviews
Huge compound surrounded by a few gardens, long flight of stairs to the top but can't go into the temple itself so it's just walking around on the outside. There's also a Maruyama Inari Shrine...

Very nice red temple at the end of a busy touristy street. The entrance is free and it is really close to town. We have seen people get married at this place. Overall the palace has a huge courtyard with lots of water and greenery. Definitely check this temple out it looks amazing.
Went on a weekday but still a crowd, not stroller friendly if you want to go up the steps to the temple, free admission, small fee to see the museum with replicas of artifacts. No photography inside the shrine or museum. Parking available but some lots more expensive than others. Beautiful temple grounds.
