    Kanagawa Pref. Kawasakishi Kawasaki-ku Daishiekimae 2-13-16
    This Shinto shrine is about a one-minute walk from Kawasaki-Daishi Station. One of the sanctuaries on the grounds of Wakamiya Hachimangu Shrine, it's known locally as Kanamara-sama. It honors the deities Kanayama-hiko and Kanayama-bime, who legend says cared for the goddess Izanami-no-Mikoto whose lower body was badly burned when she gave birth to a fire deity. As such, worshiping here is believed to ease childbirth and help heal afflictions of the lower body. Shrine festivals include the Suicho-no-Matsuri which recreates a historic drinking contest, the Fuigo Festival to pray for prosperity among blacksmiths and hardware merchants, and the annual Kanamara Festival, where patrons carry portable shrines in the shape of giant phalluses.

Kanagawa Main Areas

around-area-map

Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo’s most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
