The Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine in Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, received approval from the Kanagawa Prefecture government on Monday for withdrawal from the Jinja Honcho, who oversees Shinto shrines across Japan.

Prefectural approval is required by the law on religious corporations. The Kamakura Shrine will begin registration procedures.

The reason for the withdrawal will be explained by Shigeho Yoshida, the shrine’s chief priest, at a news conference at a later date.
