4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2014

This is the grave of Minamoto no Yoritomo, a shogun warrior who was once the militar boss of Japan. He was the founder of Kamakura Shogun, or militar government. The grave is a five floor stone pagoda. The place is surprisingly quiet - no sign of tourists around despite the significance of the monument, which makes the visit even better.
