  • On the way out of Kamakura City. I followed kanazawa highway from Tsuruoka Hachimangu Shrine, but it is quite far. This shrine is a local shrine, a dozen shrines. It is said that Masako Hojo prayed for an safe delivery. It is located on a little higher ground, and i feel the history in the stone lantern and the stone steps which are old. However, the shrine is small.

  • On the way to Asahinakiri passing in the east end of Kamakura City, I saw a small company standing quietly on the stone steps. It was written that it was twelve places shrine on the forehead of the eaves. It seems to have been founded at the end of the Heian period by the origin of the company of Kumano Twelve authorities. It seems to have become a shrine name as it was, and the place name became a shrine name as it was after the gods in the Kotouchji precincts in the 12 places which became the place name of this vicinity from Kumano 12 places became the present place after it became a early modern age. This shrine is also connected to Masako Hojo and the Genyori family of the Kamakura Shogunate, and the tenjin and jijin pillars are enshrined.
