Located outside of Yokohama and somehow in the middle of an industrial area, Sankei-en garden is an oasis of beauty and calm. Erected in 1904 by a silk trader named Tomitaro Hara, also known as Hara Sankei, this garden features, in one location, the many wonders of Japan. Thanks to his fortune, Tomitaro Hara brought from different places across Japan, such as Tokyo, Kyoto, Kamakura, Gifu and Wakayama, many historically significant structures. These include an elegant daimyo (feudal lord) residence, a few tea houses and even the main hall and three storied pagoda of Kyoto’s old Tomyoji temple.

Tsurugaoka Hachimangū, 鶴岡八幡宮 in Japanese, is the most important Shinto shrine in the city of Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The shrine is at the geographical and cultural center of the city of Kamakura, which has largely grown around it and its 1.8 km approach. It is the venue of many of its most important festivals, and hosts two museums. Tsurugaoka Hachimangū was for most of its history not only a Hachiman shrine, but also a Tendai Buddhist temple, a fact which explains its general layout, typical of Japanese Buddhist architecture.
