The Legend of Enoshima and Food Tour in West Kamakura

Yokosuka, Miura 9h 16

Long time ago there used to live a five-headed evil dragon in Fukasawa, Kamakura. People were suffered from the evilact of the dragon that ate children alive and destroyed farms, rivers and around all the land. People called the land Koshigoe which means children die land. Nowadays it is also called Koshigoe but uses other Chinese letters. The evil dragon fell in love with the Goddess of Enoshima and he amended his act of evil in order to get married to the Goddess.Later the five-headed dragon was worshipped in Myoukou-jinja (shrine) in West Kamakura, the Goddess was also worshippedin Enoshima as a Sarasvati. This is the story of 'Story of the Goddess and the five-headed dragon'. Nowadays people live in peace in Fukasawa. The Myoukou shrine is a popular sacred place for the local people.It is said that visiting both Enoshima and Myoukou shrine will give you a special spiritual energy because Enoshima shrine gives you Goddess power and Myoukou shrine gives you Dragon's man's power. They say because of those powers people can receive more luck than usual.
