Need to go back in Spring

Our last stop in Kamakura was the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine – one of the most important shrines in Kamakura.  In spring, the walk to the shrine is through the beautiful  Dankazura, a pedestrian path lined with hundreds of cherry trees.  But since it was the middle of winter and the trees were bare, we took the busy Komachi-dori shopping street instead.  Which turned out to be good thing.  Lined with shops, restaurants and more Japanese confectionery stores, we had our fifth or was it sixth Daifuku of the day.  Heh.


Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine can be reached from Kamakura Station either through the busy Komachi-dori shopping street, or along the Dankazura, a pedestrian path in the center of Wakamiya Oji Street that is lined with several hundreds of cherry trees. Via either route, the walk from Kamakura Station to the shrine takes about 10-15 minutes.
