Iwamotoro Enoshima Shrine Iwaya Caves

Iwamotoro

This is Enoshima's leading traditional Japanese inn. The inn has deep ties with Enoshima Shrine dating back 740 years. Used by Shoguns and feudal lords during the Edo Period, the inn also features in some of Kabuki's (Japanese traditional theater) most famous lines. The inn is also home to the "Iwamotoro Roman Bath" and the "Benten Cave Bath" (modelled on the caves of Enoshima), both of which are registered tangible cultural properties.

Enoshima Shrine

Enoshima Shrine was first built at Iwaya in 552 upon the imperial order of Emperor Kinmei. Today, three shrines called Hetsunomiya, Nakatsunomiya, and Okutsunomiya, are collectively known as Enoshima Shrine, a name which it has held since the Shinto-Buddhism syncretism during the Meiji Period.
