Welcoming over two million visitors during just one major holiday alone, 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.

Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine Reviews
The shrine is well kept and you can get a fortune for 100 yen. It is a good place for photos and it is relatively close to the Big Buddha. more »
Wir waren an einem Sonntag hier und es war natürlich voll. Das tolle aber war, dass die vielen Einheimischen ihre Zeremonien und Gebräuche gezeigt haben. Wir hatten auch das Glück eine Hochzeit zu seh... more »We were here on a Sunday and of course it was full. But the great thing was that the many locals showed their ceremonies and customs. We were also lucky enough to see a wedding. Otherwise, the shrine is quite nicely laid out and easy to reach.
