Adjacent to Kozen Park, which is famous for its 1,400 plum grove, a bright vermilion shrine appears as you pass through the dense greenery.
From the ink on the back of the ceiling and the description on the building tag, it can be seen that the main shrine was rebuilt during the astronomical year (1539-1541). Many kinds of sculptures and colors such as seaweed and shellfish are applied.
It is valuable as one of the buildings that anticipates the architectural style of the Azuchi-Momoyama period, where the carving technology for buildings develops dramatically, and was designated as an important cultural property in 1949.
Known as the god of easy delivery, marriage, and warding off evil, the main deity is Tajihayahime-no-mikoto, but Sugawara no Michizane is also enshrined in the main shrine and is worshiped as a god of learning.
Not only the plum blossoms in spring, but also the beauty of the four seasons such as cherry blossoms, fresh greenery, autumn leaves, and snowy scenery.
I introduced it briefly, but when you actually come to the site, you can experience the history and tradition more concretely with the locals.
We look forward to hearing from you in Japan！
