Biwajima jinja locates at Biwajima island which protrudes into the Hiragata Bay in Kanazawa-ku, Yokohama-shi. This jinja was built by Hojo Masako, and the enshrined deity is Ichikisimahime who has equated with Benzaiten by manifestation theory (holding that Shinto deities are manifestations of buddhas).



 

Biwajima jinja has located at the opposite side of Seto jinja, and at a small island which protrudes into the Hiragata Bay.


The name of Biwajima where Biwajima jinja locates derives from the island's form like Biwa(Japanese lute). Seto jinja in the front of Biwajima jinja was built by Minamoto Yoritomo calling in a enshrined deity. The other hand, Biwajima jinja was built by Hojo Masako calling in Benzaiten from Tsukubusuma jinja.
