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.
