Hitachi no Kuni Soushagu Shrine常陸國總社宮

Shrine

A Shinto shrine situated on high ground commanding a view of Mt. Tsukuba, known as one of 100 Famous Japanese Mountains, and Lake Kasumigaura, noted as the second largest lake in Japan. Just when the shrine was founded is not clear, but shrine records state it was built on the command of ancient Emperor Shomu, indicating the long history of this holy site. The shrine holds the Ishioka Festival, known as one of the three largest festivals in the Kanto region, each year in September, and during this time the grounds bustle with visitors.

JR石岡駅からかなり歩きますした。
旧参道入口から急な階段を登るので、少し疲れます。
手塚治虫先生とコラボした社宮は、なかなか面白いです。
ヤマトタケルや火の鳥が好きな方が、行かれると聞いています。

その名の通り、常陸国の「総社」です。
「総社」って何だ?「一之宮」と何が違うんだ?・・・という疑問もあるかと思いますが、「総社」と云うのはその国(旧国)の神々(解釈によっては八百万の神々)を1ヶ所に集めた神社で「一之宮」はその国(旧国)で一番格式の高い神社と云うことになります。
では「総社」は何の為にあるのか?と云うと、国司(今で云う県知事の様な人)が着任した際にまず最初に、地域の神々に対し挨拶を...

          Just a stone’s throw from Tokyo, Ibaraki is a coastal prefecture that has mastered juxtapositions, where old shrines meet new scientific discoveries and traditional gardens are frequented by the inventors of some of the newest technology. Head to Mito City's Kairakuenーone of Japan's Three Great Gardensーin spring to experience the cellestial blooming of fantastic cherry blossoms at the annual sakura festival.
