    Kanagawa Pref. Iseharashi Sannomiya 1472
    Sannomiya Hibita Shrine is located in the Sannomiya area of the city of Isehara in Kanagawa Prefecture and is dedicated to both the god Toyokumune-no-Mikoto, said to be part of the earliest generation of gods, and the god Sakatoki-no-Kami, the god of sake. This has made it a popular destination for sake brewers. It attracts large numbers of worshipers, since it is believed to be a good place to pray for fulfillment of wishes, true love, or a marriage partner. It is one of the five shrines in the former province of Sagami that participates in the Kokufu Festival every year on May 5.

    伊勢原市ののどかな農村地帯に囲まれた神社。田舎の神社ですが創建は古く、延喜式にも名を連ねた由緒ある神社です。また伊勢原市の比々多地区は古墳も多く、古くから人の営みが続いていたことを示す神社とも言えます。 私は初詣の時期に行ったので結構混み合っていましたが、普段は静かで雰囲気の良い神社です。

Kanagawa Areas

around-area-map

Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo’s most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
