Ugafuku Shrine ( Goddess of Money Washing), Kamakura

4.1
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.

  • People said more money money washing benzaiten UGA fukujin, wash the money here, wants to increase the money from Japan will show gathering excitement! And visit the people want more money because it doesn't go into their caves and mysterious atmosphere fills the air... such as FX, stocks and investment like risk!

  • 1 / 1 12:10 arrival. There was money to wash line. To wash the place was about 30 minutes. You do not have to put the money in a colander, rinse the colander is in the cave from. People who already have a colander if you have no need. Coming back, many times over, and expect and kinda fun. From Kamakura station is uphill and then in step so severe in the elderly.

  • I went to Qian wash Benten also conducts several times, but we have this time. And of course we also initiate and, I wash and money as well. Had washed, put money in the basket, next was wash the money of foreign tourists. 10000 Yen bills washed, hanging in the back car, ran while drying. As Sasuke Inari CDN wanted is wanted, it is close, but a little walking in the turn also was taken late in the evening, so the next time, come back was. Washing is worried about whether I'd go was guided by navigation, parking, wrote the Benten-parking and parking on the way in. Dear valve hands not to go climbing up the Hill a little, about 5 minutes in step on little problems because it is the place to go, I think. Or it's just your perfect feet better in front of the cave is carved out of Rose Hill in a car who can't walk and poke the stick, preferably a UGA fukujin's stone of the hope driving hand had been put under the parking car and I are.

Where to stay in Kamakura

Given the easy access from Tokyo via a number of public transport options, the vast majority of visitors to Kamakura choose to stay in the capital and head here for a day trip. If you feel there's too much to see in one day, then you'll be pleased to find a decent selection of accommodations in Kamakura itself. Down by the sea sit perhaps the most luxurious of the crop, with sea views high on the list of desires for those who stay here. Follow the river as it snakes inland past the train station, and you'll see a good number of more standard hotels, as well as particularly budget-friendly guesthouses.
