This is a shrine where the Minamoto tribe built the Kamakura shogunate foundation had prayed for their victory.
A symbol of the precincts, the holly trees called Sakasa-Sugi (Japanese Cedar) of 1,500 years old is designated as a National Monument as well as a “100 Great Trees of Japan”.
In the shrine premises, there is a spring water called “Wakamizu” which brings longevity beside the Sakasa-Sugi. This water “Wakamizu” is also said to bring good fortune if you take it and the place is known as a power spot.
The water flows into a pond where you can see the bottom clearly.
There are carps in the pond, and when the visitors get closer to the pond, the group of carps also came closer to the edge.
