So many locks with so many prayers of so many couples

A new Power Spot in Enoshima Island

That's what you first see when you visit here. Then you'll find there's a bell in the center, which is called Ryuren no Kane, or the Bell of Dragon's Love.

The legend of a five-headed dragon and a sea goddess

A new Power Spot in Enoshima IslandThis bell was built here in 1996 to commemorate the legend of a five-headed dragon who fell in love with a sea goddess who appeared suddenly and made up an island, which is the legendary foundation of Enoshima Island.

Long time ago, the dragon did so many wrongdoings that people were greatly tormented . But after the first sight of the goddess, the dragon amended and finally his proposal was accepted by her.

Today the sea goddess is worshiped as Enoshima Benzaiten and the five-headed dragon is worshiped as Ryukou Myoujin in Koshigoe, Kamakura.

Again, just take a look at them!

And among the countless number of locks is the one placed by a couple who appeared in a recent film, Hidamari no Kanojo, which made this place even more popular among young couples who wish for eternal love.

Eri was easy to communicate with right from the start. Quick to respond to any queries I had too. She met us with a bright smile and was very patient with us. She regaled us with the many stories of Shoguns and battles and tragic love. It was a wonderful way to learn of the past and to marvel at the monuments attesting to those tales. Truly a delight to share it with Eri. Thank you

As I was travelling with my teenagers, I was looking for someone who could show us around all the shrines and temples (which could otherwise have been boring without any guide). We're very happy to have found Eri. Eri is an excellent guide who knows Kamakura very well. Dressed in a kimono, she has a pl...
