Enoshima Shrine (Nakatsumiya)

Enoshima Shrine is the collective term for three shrines and is made up of Hetsumiya, Nakatsumiya, and Okutsumiya.
Each of the shrines is dedicated to one of three sisters who are the goddesses of the sea, traffic, happiness, wealth, and improvement in performing arts (music).
Ichikishimahime-no-Mikoto is enshrined in Nakatsumiya.
The shrine was built by Jikaku Daishi in 853 and was renovated (restored) into the current vibrant shrine in 1996.
The stone lanterns were donated by kabuki actors from Nakamura-za Theater and Ichimura-za Theater and their popularity (liveliness) during the Enoshima pilgrimage of the Edo period can be observed.
The suikinkutsu next to the shrine creates a mysterious sound when dripping water.
