My husband and I visited this shrine with my son and his wife during the week prior to their wedding in Japan. They had visited the shrine on their last holiday to Japan and wanted us to see it. We had walked to the shrine towards the end of the day after first visiting the Great Buddha (after taking the train and then a short bus ride to get there from Tokyo) and then walking through Kamakura and it's vendor & cafe lined streets (so all three can be done easily together in one afternoon). The pathway leading to the shrine is so peaceful. After walking up the big staircase leading to the entrance to the shrine, we went inside to take a moment to reflect. There is a large building adjacent to the shrine where souvenirs can be purchased at a reasonable cost. Many have specific meanings and/or are tokens of good luck. The grounds around the shrine are lovely and there are clean public washrooms available for use. It was dusk as we were leaving and the premises was lit up with pretty lighting throughout. There is absolutely no cost to visit the shrine or the lovely property it is located on.
