A 20-minute stroll into Kamakura's hills will bring you to the atmospheric Zeniarai Benten, the ‘Money-Washing Shrine’ dedicated to one of the seven lucky gods. A tunnel going through the mountainside leads into a mysterious area with waterfalls, ponds and small shrines carved into the cliff face, the air filled with incense and ethereal music. Inside the main cave, place your money, notes and all, into bamboo baskets that you then dip in the water. The truly faithful will find their assets have doubled in value.
