The official name of the shrine is Chinsaibenzaiten Ugafuku Shrine. After passing through the quiet residential area and passing through a tunnel dug through the rock, you will arrive at the shrine grounds. There is a zeniaraimizu water spring in the oguchi, which is located in the cave facing the left hand side of the main hall. This clear spring is known as one of the five famous waters of Kamakura, and it is said that money laundered with the water here is multiplied many times, and many worshipers can still be seen laundering money by throwing bills or coins into the bamboo basket.
According to the legend, the shrine was established because Yoritomo Minamoto (1147-1199), who started the Kamakura Shogunate, had a dream on his pillow from Uga Fukushin on the night of the sixth day of the sixth month in 1185, saying, “If I use the water here to worship the gods and Buddhas, the world will be at peace. Later, Tokiyori Hojo (1227-1263) washed copper coins with water here and prayed for the prosperity of his family, giving rise to the present belief in money washing.
I came here on January 4th, and followed the crowd from Enoden Kamakura Station for a long time. It was probably the New Year’s Day, and the shrine was full of incense. It was the first time I saw a shrine that burned incense like the ones in Japan. The line of worshipers went all the way to the hill. I washed all the money I had with me, hoping that I would be rich this year! I feel like there are a lot of fan girls in the queue, and I heard a lot of kinki no fan and other words, after all, just after the con.
