Washing Money in Zeniarai Benten shrine, Japan

0 Comments

If you are in Tokyo,
this place would be interesting for you to check out as it's only 55mins train ride away from Tokyo.

Location:
Kamakura 
Zeniarai Benten shrine

How to get there:

From Tokyo Station: Take the JR Yokosuka Line Kamakura Station about 55 minutes, about 30 minutes walk from Kamakura Station.


It's not easy to find this place so I would reckon you get GPS or ask the tourist information counter once you arrive in Kamakura.
It's about 30-40 mins walk to here from the station.

However, I find it worth walking all the way here cause this shrine is really unique.

The entrance was surprisingly FREE

It's hard to notice it, but this temple is hidden in a cave like outlook appearence but
actually it's just a tunnel !



Which would then lead you to an open area which is still within a cave.

And then, you enter again the cave to visit the temple.

Now this cave temple is interesting as there is a ready made drain for locals to put their money in a basket and shower them with the holy water.

My basket and money.

And shower them all wet.

They believe these money will double !
As in, you will be blessed financially.

Not a good idea to shower so much of the paper money cuz it's gonna get wet and hard to dry.




I must say the experience was sure Interesting !!!
So, don't missed out if you're checkin out Kamakura ~
