Ugafuku Shrine ( Goddess of Money Washing), Kamakura
(4/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • Takes you to the money washing benzaiten with some out of town, a short walk from Kamakura station, fairly steep climb through a narrow tunnel, and Torii. Bought a colander and incense to pray, wash the moneys in the cave, seriously, would wash. You may become the matrix columns to pray.
