Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu

Interesting
Three immense torii adorn this beautiful alley of cherry trees that stretches for almost 1.5km as far as the shrine. The latter was founded in 1063 by Yoriyoshi (ancestor of the Minamoto clan) in tribute to Emperor Ojin Himegami, but most of the edifices date from the Momoyama period and also from 1823. The kamino miya upper shrine at the top of the steps houses the Museum of National Treasures, (religious artefacts and portable shrines).
