Ugafuku Shrine ( Goddess of Money Washing), Kamakura

(4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Wash your money in the cave spring of Ugafuku Shrine ( Goddess of Money Washing) and, hopefully, it will multiply. Despite its small size, this 12th-century Shinto shrine enjoys popularity in Kanagawa because of a widely held belief that the holy water inside the dugout cave has the power to bring prosperity in business and good luck with money. Enter through a tunnel in the hillside, halfway down from the park at the foot of the hill, and buy a basket with accessories. Light a candle, burn incense, and pray before you wash the money. Following a steep road, this is a 20 minute walk from Kamakura railway station. Put Ugafuku Shrine ( Goddess of Money Washing) into our Kamakura tour planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Kamakura.

  • Not using taxi about 15 minutes to walk from Kamakura Daibutsu great Buddha, but a little bit tired. Rock Tunnel shrine. More work from the people who gave pearls bought souvenirs-and pleased.

  • Photo is the 100 million yen of candy has been washed real well! Went early in the morning, so many people, friends and newcomers could Charter with water. Put the Bank bought, so it was nice and simple. Home, had a bank account a few days later, what! It was a perk. Going to the temple.
