Biwajima Shrine

It is said that Hojo Masako, who was a wife of Minamoto no Yoritomo, created the land by reclaiming the sea surrounding Seto Shrine and founded the Biwajima Benzaiten. The shrine is dedicated to Benzaiten (the Goddess of Wloquence, Music, and Art), one of the Yokohama Kanazawa Seven Deities of Good Fortune. It is secretly gaining popularity as a coastline viewing spot.

Seto Shrine

This place used to be a narrow strait and a chokepoint of marine traffic because of its rapid flow during low/high tide. So, the shrine was built and had been sacred to the god of the sea since 5th to 6th centuries. Izu Mishima Myojin was divided and transferred to the shrine to pray for the victory when Minamoto no Yoritomo was going to war.
