Kamakura festival is a grave event in Kamakura’s spring which continues from 1959. It’s performed from April 2nd Sunday to 3rd Sunday every year centering on Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu.
“Shizuka no Mai” which reproduces a dance of Shizuka Gozen of Minamotono Yoshitsune and the concubine who lived and parted the past in about 800 is performed. “Yabusame” which conforms to the ancient rite which bears a close resemblance to a picture scroll in a time is also performed at Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu riding ground. I bustle with many people by an event in spring Kamakura.
Date: 1 week from every year April 2nd Sunday to 3rd Sunday
Address (Tsurugaoka Hachimangu): Yukinoshita 2-1-31, Kamakura-shi, Kanagawa (GoogleMap)
