Kamakura is one of the most famous historical cities in Japan, the birthplace of Japan's first samurai government, the "Kamakura Shogunate." Minamoto-no-Yoritomo, the first shogun of the Kamakura Shogunate, constructed the Tsurugaoka-Hachimangu Shrine in 1191. Tsurugaoka-Hachimangu Shrine is dedicated to the god of war and attracts thousands of visitors now.
"Kamakura Festival" is held on April each year at Tsurugaoka-Hachimangu Shrine. The festival opens with splendid Samurai Procession and Mikoshi Parade from Wakamiya-oji Street to Tsurugaoka-Hachimangu Shrine.
The highlight of the festival is the Shizuka-no-Mai dance performance, which is based on the tragic story of Princess Shizuka. Besides, various events such as a Yabusame horseback archery, a tea ceremony, a Haiku poetry reading, and more, are scheduled.

Great place, but visiting on roasting hot mid-august is not a great idea

An early morning visit to this huge shrine captured the hustle and bustle to the start of the day. This shrine gets really busy and it’s best to visit when they open at 8am. A parking lot is located directly across the street but be prepared to pay ¥2,000 to park for two hours.

A place you should visit at least once when you come to Kamakura.
The view overlooked from the temple grounds is worth a visit.
The lotus flowers are beautiful in July ✨

I can see why this is one of the most visited temples in a city that is filled with temples. The architecture is beautiful and it's really a complex of temples and shrines that shows a fun blend of Budhism and Shintoism.

This shrine is beautiful. It's large and has a very large complex it is located on with several other things to see and do and smaller shrines.
The approach to it from one side has a tree-lined sidewalk path that winds through a busy street with tons of shopping and eating and small lion and dragon statues.
It's very pretty, very old, and has a very real sense of calm around the whole place.
