Shrine

This shrine is known as one of the three biggest Sumiyoshi Shrines in Japan along with the Sumiyoshi Shrine in Fukuoka City and Osaka City. The main shrine is designated as a national treasure, and the hall of worship, built by donations from MOTONARI Mori, is an Important Cultural Property. An annual festival is held from December 8th to 15th , where shimenawa rope is spread all over in the grounds, meaning that general visitors cannot enter, and priests cannot leave and must purify themselves.

Review of Sumiyoshi Shrine

Reviewed:2018/11/10 長門一の宮
大阪に住吉大社、博多の住吉神社とともに日本三大住吉の一社です。日本書紀に依れば200年に神功皇后が「三韓征伐」の帰りにこの地で「私の荒魂を長門の山田邑まつりなさい」という神託を住吉三神かり授かり、創建したそうです。海上交通の要の下関にふさわしい海上交通を守護する航海安全の神様です。現在の本殿は1370年に大内弘世によって造営され、第一から第五の五殿が連なり国宝に指定されています。
Reviewed:2018/06/30 下関にある長門国一之宮、本殿は国宝指定。
新下関駅から徒歩で20分ほど。長門国一ノ宮として、古くから崇敬されている神社。境内も広く、歴史を感じさせます。青銅製の狛犬は、再建ですが、ここにしかない愛嬌のある珍しいもの。大楠もあります。国宝の本殿は五つの社殿が連結されたもの。見所も多い神社です。

大阪の住吉大社と博多の住吉神社と「日本三大住吉」です。本殿の千鳥破風が5個あるのが国宝です。初めて見ましたがいい感じです。本殿横の大楠も見ごたえありました。

          Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes—the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
