⛰[Attraction Guide] Small spot in Kamakura-Tsuruoka Hachimangu Shrine 💗Recommendation reason: It is one of the three big Hachiman Shrines, and the chief sacrificial gods are the Hachiman three gods: Emperor Yingshen, God of Bisar, and Empress of Shen Gong. They were stopped before they got to the palace, but found out that they were doing some ritual, especially orthodox, and very serious: one by one, they walked over at the corresponding pace and movement. All of us have to wait for them to pass before letting us go on their way. The dance hall leading to the main palace is a place where dances are performed in the palace. The "Dance of Silence" performed at the Kamakura Festival held in April every year is worth seeing. The dance hall is a place where dance music and folk wedding ceremonies are held. According to legend, before the establishment of the dance hall, the beloved concubine of the tragic military commander Gen Yoshitsune Jingyuqian was the place where Gen Yoshitsune performed the dance, but the poems she danced and sang were aimed at Gen Yoshitsune. Believers and tourists from all over the country stepped up religiously and orderly to visit the patron saint, the god of war and the god of war in the Hachiman Palace. There were real ceremonies on that day, and people were forbidden to enter. Only by showing some kind of invitation can you enter. 📌Little Tips: Tsuruoka Hachimangu Shrine was the center of faith for the guardian deity of the samurai in the Middle Ages, and it is still the symbol of Kamakura today. Founded in 1063, the first general of the Kamakura shogun, Gen Yoshito, used to set up a division here and defeated the enemy Hei clan. 🌟Highlights and features: 1⃣️The "dedication" at the entrance is very shocking (the various colorful chrysanthemums placed here are carefully cultivated by local Japanese residents at home and sent to this dedication shrine). The Komachi Street that goes out of the palace gate leads to the east exit of Kamakura Station. On both sides of the road, there are rows of shops selling special snacks such as dumplings and pancakes, and souvenirs of Kamakura. In the middle of the street, there is a tree-lined road one section higher than the driveway, and on both sides there are traditional stone lamps from Japanese shrines, and a large red torii gate is built at the beginning of the road. Visitors and visitors to the shrine can leisurely walk to the shrine through this straight tree-lined road. The straight path in front of the shrine is called Duan Ge. 2⃣️Ichi no Torii is a stone Myojin Torii, made of Mikage Stone (granite) from Inujima, Bizen Country, 8.5m high and 92cm in diameter. 📍Detailed address: After walking this road, we arrived at Kamakura Station.
