This shrine located on the high ground of Genjiyama is famous for match-making. It is also the place where Toshimoto Hino, who served Emperor Go-Daigo and was captured by the Kamakura shogunate, met his end. Stone monuments with a farewell poem and a memorial for Toshimoto Hino are on the premises. Recently the shrine has become popular as a power spot for the fulfillment of love. Lovers will take scarlet red strings with five yen coins tied on and attach them around either the male or female matchmaking rocks as a way of binding their wishes.

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.
