Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine remains one of Japan's most popular religious sites. The complex contains both a Hachiman shrine (blending elements of Shinto and Buddhism) and a Tendai Buddhist temple, with examples of traditional Japanese architecture. The complex once boasted a 1000-year-old ginkgo tree, destroyed in the 2010 typhoon. An old stone stairway still stands as one of the site's major features.
