Kamakura: Day 2

After finishing our previous day of sightseeing in Kamakura soaked from an afternoon of rain, we were delighted to wake up to a sunny day.  We caught the bus from our Guest House and after having breakfast, explored the biggest and most important shrine in Kamakura: Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gū.

Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu is a beautiful complex surrounded by trees and water.  After walking up the massive staircase, you reach the main shrine.  If you walk behind the shrine to the left side, there is a very small museum.  We paid the small fee to take a look at the few historical relics displayed.  It was well worth it. 

Purifying our hands before entering the shrine.
Pin It!
