Senzoku Ike Benzaiten
October 30, 2019
Also known as Ichikishima Jinja. The only information I have on this shrine is a small notice board inside the shrine grounds. In centuries past there was a small shrine on the north bank of Senzoku Ike but it gradually sank into the lake. At the beginning of the Shōwa era, 1926, many residents of the area began seeing Benzaiten in their dreams. This led to discussions about again enshrining Benzaiten and in July 1934 these discussions bore fruit with the restoration of the shrine. It is about 150m along the shore of Senzoku Ike from Senzoku Hachiman Jinja.
