Zeniaraibenzaiten Shrine


Minamoto Yoritomo ordered the shrine's construction after a sign from God on the day of the snake, in the month of the snake of the year of the snake, 1185. God said that his era would be peaceful and tranquil, if Yoritomo held a memorial service with this water. After that Hojo Tokiyori washed his money with the water here and prayed for his family's prosperity. Following his example, people have washed their money and prayed for happiness and prosperity. The water used to wash the money is one of Kamakura's 5 famous waters.
