Ugafuku Shrine ( Goddess of Money Washing), Kamakura

4.1
#8 of 77 in Historic Sites in Kamakura
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • As more money is washed and zeniarai famous. Kita-Kamakura station GoogleMAP in fairly far's, came in about a 30-minute walk. Visit, and put the money in a colander awash. In the cave-like feeling somehow cool. Somehow it feels good healing effects? Is not in the power spot?

  • My wife wanted to go in, I walked from Kamakura station on the morning of the holiday. It went to Starbucks onari-Cho and the GARDEN HOUSE was, which was for the first time. You walked into the road and then turn right, walk through the residential area 20 minutes, another Tokoro is a little bit in the last uphill was a Mecha kits is. Pay 100 yen along with a set of candles and incense sticks and money designed to receive the basket for washing. Then fire up your incense sticks and lit a candle in the first turn. It is style from putting money in the bamboo basket: wash with water. Use the clean handkerchief, then.

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.
