This shrine has a legend story that is increase money if you wash money at water of Zeniaraibenten. 
There is a course I want to recommend for those who are confident in one's leg strength.
That is “Kesyozaka kiritoshi” (化粧坂切通し)course.
Kiritooshi(切通し)Road which we cut through mountains or hills.




The way(Kiritoshi) leads to the area of ​​Musashi directions (Tokyo and Saitama) as a main entrance, it had an important meaning in Kamakura's defense.





The slope was slippery and uneven to prevent passing horse. It is a slope of about 80m.










If you are not confident in your leg strength or the weather is bad, this course can not be recommended.

Use another some course or a using bus or taxi. Even taxi from Kamakura Station can go for 730yen. (※ fee is varies depending on traffic conditions)
