Wakamiya-oji

Wakamiya-oji

The road leading to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu from Yuigahama, which is said to have been constructed by Minamoto no Yoritomo as a prayer for his wife Masako’s safe childbirth, and which became the center of community development in Kamakura. We know from excavations that it was a wide road which spread out further on the Kamakura Station side than the present road does. The first, second, and third shrine archways form a line from the coast side, and the raised path leading to the shrine signifies the placing of a kazuraishi which doubles as a curb. There are places to eat and drink and boutiques lined up to the left and right, and it is counted as one of the one hundred chosen paths of Japan.
