Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 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.

  • Went to kenchoji Temple side. Fine-not walking the streets, and the trail's rugged trails. It's absolute NG leather shoes heels. To wash the money needed to buy incense candles set of 100 yen. Whether or not money my walked on to Kamakura station was soon (lol), but Jiang-slightly shorter distance and buses from the electrical side and before the tax authorities around the bus station go by bus. So going from kenchoji Temple side as mentioned above, however, is entirely hiking watch
