[jules' pics] Zeniaraibenten - the church of mammon

Zeniaraibenten is one of the most visited shrines in Kamakura.
The reason is that if you wash your money in the stream in the cave, you are sure to get very rich. The origami cranes hanging down from the roof of the cave presumably add to the likelihood of increased wealth and happiness.
In a similar vein, it can surely do no harm to worship in clothing emblazoned with the emblem by a large and prosperous company.
The fish in the ponds are suitably golden.

Shocked at these young women - don't they realize the future of the future is at stake and yet they don't seem to care about the science!
