Ugafuku Shrine ( Goddess of Money Washing), Kamakura

4.1

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.
