Itsukushima Shrine (厳島神社)

"A Shinto shrine located in the center of Sumoto City 10 minutes from the Sumoto interchange on the Kobe-Awaji-Naruto Expressway. Dedicated to the same goddess as Itsukushima Shrine on Miyajima island of Aki (Hiroshima)-Ichikishimahime-no-Mikoto. During the period when the syncretism of Buddhism and Shintoism flourished in Japan, this goddess was seen as another aspect of Benzaiten, and as such the shrine is also known as the ""Awaji Island Benzaiten."" Known to locals as ""Benten-san,"" during the shrine's fall festival, called the Benzaiten Festival, festival stalls open up all along the surrounding streets, and the area bustles with visitors. The ""Goshinko"" deity transference ceremony conducted on the final day of the festival is considered one of Japan's top ""unusual"" festival rituals."

弁財天と習合されたいちきしまひめのみことを祀っております。創建年代は、江戸時代の前半と伝えられております。

洲本市内のマップには神社も幾つかあったので巡ることにしました。
洲本市 厳島神社は、「弁天さん」の名で親しまれる神社。
三熊山を背景にした拝殿は立派で、干支の絵馬が大きくて目立ちます。
境内にある洲本八狸の像が可愛いですね、この後町のあちこちで見かけました。

益習館庭園を見るのに車を停めた駐車場の前にあったので参拝させていただきました。社殿の後ろには山が控えていていい景色でした。今年は戌年ということで、犬の絵を描いた大きな絵馬が置かれていました。初詣などにはきっとたくさんの参拝者が訪れるのでしょうね。

          Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture’s main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country’s most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
