My name is Ofuji, the youngest child of “Komachi Musume”. Aichi Prefecture The second place to introduce is “Susanoo shrine” in Nagoya city! When the name of the place here is called “Genbei-cho” and thinking that it is somehow cool ! And walking … I found a secretly “Susanoo shrine” in the residential area!

Ofuji went to Fukagawa Shrine in Seto City, Aichi Prefecture

Hello! My name is “Ofuji”, the youngest child of “Komachi musume”(* ^^ *) The first one to introduce is Fukagawa Shrine located in Seto City, Aichi Prefecture! Seto City is a city of “Setomono”. It seems that Seto in “Setomono” is coming from this Seto city. It is Fukagawa Shrine that symbolizes it exactly.   Founder of Seto-yaki, Futoshiro (Kato Kagemasa) who went to China in the Kamakura period, learned the technique of pottery and reported it to Seto visited Fukagawa Shrine. Fujisiro is enshrined in the adjacent “Suehiko Shrine”. And Fukagawa Shrine has a “Ryokan”(Japanese-style hotel )in the precincts! Actually, I also stayed there, but I did not think there was a […]

I’m Oryou,the second daughter of komachi-musume.   Since I came to Shizuoka prefecture, following the Mishima Taisha shrine yesterday, I have been to Numazu’s Hie Shrine – !!   I am visiting at 8:00 in the morning ~ It is good to visit the shrine in the morning, it seems to be a good day to feel dignity! This shrine is a shrine that has been popular as “Mr. Sanno” since the Heian era, it seems to have been exaggerated as a god of total compassion by 22 near villages until the Meiji era.   Several people are doing sweeping and the feeling that this shrine is loved by […]

【お藤のたび】愛知県知多市にある「牟山(むさん)神社」

こまちむすめのおふじです! 愛知の旅行も今日で最終日。もう帰らなきゃいけないなんて残念(>_<) 最後に紹介するのは、知多市にある「牟山(むさん)神社」です! 牟山神社は、朝倉駅すぐ近くにあり、牟山神社の神事として行われる「朝倉の梯子獅子」が有名。愛知県の無形文化財に指定されているそうです。 はしご?!とビックリされた方もいますよね! なんと31段の梯子と高さ約9メートルのやぐらの上で、2人の獅子が音楽に合わせて前転したり、屈伸したりして舞い踊るそうなんです! この日は見られなかったので、次回はぜひやってるところも見てみたいな~!! でも、実際に見たらハラハラしちゃいそう・・・(´・ω・`) 昔、猪を退治するために、獅子舞を村民達で協力して作り、おかげで大豊作となったというエピソードがあるそう。それにちなんで、翌年から獅子舞を祭礼で演じるようになったそうです。 地元で育った庶民の文化が、現在も残る牟山神社は、地元の方にとって大きな存在で、心の拠りどころなんだろうなと感じました。 神社には地元の小学生や中学生もいて、学校の帰り道にこんな素敵な神社があるのが羨ましく思えた、おふじの旅でした(*^^*)   おふじ

Oryou went to Shizuoka’s Mishima Taisha Shrine

Hello everyone! I’m Oryo, the second daughter of “Komachi Musume sisters”. I was invited to a warm-hearted and merry manner, and I came to Shizuoka’s “Mishima Taisha” listed in one of the Japanese name companies.             Mishima Shrine is a shrine revered by Yoritomo Mori. Harris, who is known for visiting Japan in the late Edo period and being known for signing the Japan – US Cooperation Agreement on Trade, also has a record of visiting this shrine, a shrine deeply involved with historical figures. Although you can go from the front of Mishima station by the circulation bus “Seseragi”, you can only walk from […]
