    Fukushima Pref. Onumagunaidumisatomachi Miyabayashi Kou 4377
    This shrine is said to be the origin of the “Aizu” location name. It began when people worshipped Izanagi-no-mikoto and Izanami-no-mikoto at Mt. Mikaguratake. Now it elicits adoration from worshippers inside and outside the prefecture looking for better fortune, longevity, better relationships, and safe commutes. The precincts feature the “Usuzumi Zakura”: a holy tree that is mostly white with some light charcoal color, which gradually turns reddish and releases a unique aroma. The Ayame Festival held in the outer Ayame Garden begins in mid-June and exhibits 100,000 irises, attracting many visitors.

    会津六詣でと言われる社寺の一つ。 鳥居と山門が大きくて立派だが、本殿の小ささにちょっとがっくり来る。ひょっとしたら拝殿かも知れない。

The shrine also provides ceremonial cleansings from evil influences and shichi-go-san (ages seven, five, and three) blessings for children.

    My sister got married to her Japanese fiancé here. Such an amazing experience. It was an honour to take part dressed in kimono and take part in a unique culture. The shrine is just beautiful inside...

    美味しい昼食の下準備としてこちらの奥宮参拝をセレクト。のっけから車進入禁止の舗装されていない道路を歩きながらこれは選択を誤ったかと思い歩き続けると、途中で山道に。滝などあって、また未舗装道路に。ほとんど未舗装道路を歩くことになりますが、ふくしま遊歩道50選になっている杉の山道と202段の階段は楽しめました。そして未舗装道路はある意味結構つらいです。個人的には予想外の普通に片道ちゃんと1時間はかかり...

    Fukushima Motomiya Motomiya Tatenokoshi

    JR本宮駅から北に歩いて20分ほど。途中のみずいろ公園などに寄って、市街散策をしながら行くのがよいでしょう。小高い丘の上にあり、参道の階段がけっこう急なのでそのつもりで。特に文化財などにはなっていないようでしたが、社殿はなかなか立派で、見ごたえがありました。

    Fukushima Nihonmatsu-shi Kohata Jike 49

    日曜日の午前中車で向かいました。 神仏集合の名残りか、高野山のように本殿まで○○丁石の印が有ります。 無料駐車場は三町石と八町石の側に有ります。 八町石からでも本殿まで少し登ります。 三町石からだと舗装されていない山道(6町石から獣道)を八町石まで30分ぐらい登ります。ちょっとしんどいですが、大杉を見るなら歩く必要が有ります。 本殿・拝殿の側に経堂や三重塔があり、神仏集合の霊山だった事が感じられま...
