Kamakura- quotes about the place and the era

“[Kamakura era Shogun] Yoritomo’s very unpretentious tomb is to found off to the right of the [Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu] shrine near a hill. It is an austere grave befitting a samurai, unlike the monstrous mausoleums for the Tokugawa shoguns as Nikko, which look as if they were built for mafioso dons” Insight Guides Japan
