At the end of the 12th century, there were two warlords.
Minamoto no Yoritomo and Taira no Kiyomori.
This warlord fought and Minamoto no Yoritomo won.
Then, in 1192, the Kamakura Shogunate was opened by Minamoto no Yoritomo.
Last week I went to Kamakura, the city where this shogunate was held.
It is now a famous tourist attraction and is home to many inhabitants.
There is a famous shrine, Tsuruoka Hachimangu.
The cherry blossoms have begun to bloom and I felt spring.
There was another interesting thing.
I was surprised to see a pigeon on my friend’s shoulder.
This is a very large traditional shrine.
And I went to another famous temple.
Hokokuji is a beautiful temple with bamboo bushes.
I relaxed with a cup of traditional tea here.
If it came in the summer, it might have felt cooler.
