Mandarado Yagura Caves

Mandarado Yagura Caves


The Mandarado Yagura Caves is a unique structure only found in Kamakura that has been opened to the public for a limited time. As the city began to grow during the Kamakura period, there was a shortage of places for tombs. To combat this, ‘yagura’ holes were created by digging into the side of the cliff to house urns. The Mandarado Yagura has about 150 holes and has been beautifully preserved. Take a look at it from the observation deck and you will see just how mysterious and beautiful of a sight it is.
