A couple is taking pictures of each other in front of the cave at Zeniarai Benten.
Zeniarai Benten is the 2nd popular sightseeing spot in Kamakura because of its spring water in the cave, which brought a fortune to Yoritomo in the folklore story.
Sightseers pour the water from the spring on their money and wish the water multiplies money (as the folklore story) and brings them wealth. The worshipped deity of the shrine is the syncretic entity. Ugafukujin = Ichikishimahime = Benzaiten = Sarasvati.
They are all goddesses who related to a dragon and represents water, fortune, harvest, and wealth.
