Located on the north side of Kaizuka Station on the Nankai Railway, it is the guardian deity of the land of Kaizuka Jinaicho, which was formerly known as Kandakawara Daimyojin.
It is said to have been built by the townspeople in 1587, and has been worshiped by the locals ever since.
Jinaicho was a town that prospered around Gansenji Temple in the latter half of the Middle Ages.
Every July, a magnificent “Taikodai Festival” is held. At the evening shrine, lanterns and curtains are set up at each house, and the next day, a portable shrine is handed over at the main shrine.
The highlight is the taikodai, which has a red futon packed in a V shape and exceeds 1 ton.
Seven taikodais bravely parade through the city with the shout of “Bella Bella Bella Shosho”.
This festival is said to be the oldest of the taikodai festivals held in various parts of Quanzhou.
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！
