Tsurugaoka Hachimangu


Tsurugaoka Hachimangu originated from the ceremonially transference of a divided tutelary deity of Iwashimizu Hachimangu Shrine In Kyoto to Yuigo Tsurugaoka in 1063 by Minamoto Yoriyoshi and its appellative was Tsurugaoka wakamiya. In 1180, the descendant Minamoto no Yoritomo moved the shrine to its present site. In 1191, he set the shrine as the center of the Kamakura Bakufu Government,and also modeled it into the present arrangement-the Jogu shrine on the top of the stone steps and the Wakamiya Shrine at the bottom of it.
