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.

  • This show about 20 people, went walking hiking trail from the Kita-Kamakura. It is going through a rocky passage is not so much big shrine is a nice little atmosphere. Wash the money at a cave in the back office with a basket at 100 yen, returned. Among those who went to 10000 Yen bills wash that way. I washed the coin, I went back.

Went walking about 10 minutes next to the souvenir shop at Sasuke. Yes it is in the middle of the hike so I think.
