Hello everyone! I’m Oryo, the second daughter of “Komachi Musume sisters”.
This time the cool came this time, Kokuwakura Shrine in Iwaki City, Fukushima Prefecture!
About 15 minutes on foot from Iwaki station. Go up the staircase colored with red spot that dropped by dampness and go through the torii to the precincts ~
The rusty green roof of the Buddha’s copper gets wet more by the rain It is more beautiful ~
By the way, this shrine was written as God of clothing, eating and living.
Clothing, eating and living? Is it? God of. What do you mean? Is it?
Actually, it seems that this name is called “Kokuwakura” itself is clothes, eating, and living ~
(Incidentally, it is also the shrine name that was the only shrine in Japan!)
Ko(子): meaning silkworms, in the age when sericulture is popular, it is derived from “treating” silkworms as “kids” and treating them “clothes”
Kuwa（鍬）: “Eating” with hoe of agricultural equipment
Kura（倉）: In an ancient place of goods payment and economy or “living”
Kokuwakura Shrine = that it was a clothing,eating and living shrine!
Clear the mystery cleared!
It was reported that the foundation was 806, one of the Iwaki seven Shrines , one of the three Shinto shrines of Heijo as one of the four shrines in Iwaki 4 counties, was a historical old It is a shrine. Because it was just the exam season, there were also many ema of successful prayers!
Hang in there! Examination student! I hope Sakura blooms.
