Izumo Oyashiro出雲大社

4.0

Shrine

This is a shrine in Izumo City, Shimane Prefecture, enshrining the great Okuninushi, known as a god of marriage. It is also known by its official name Izumo Oyashiro. There are several legends about the foundation of the shrine including one that says it was built as a condition for Okuninushi transferring over the land of Japan. The main shrine is designated as a national treasure, and features Japan’s oldest shrine architectural style. It is rebuilt about every 60 years. The kagura hall is famous for the largest shimenawa (sacred rope) in Japan. The magnificent row of pine trees called “Pine Baba” is designated as one of Japan’s top 100 pine spots.

Review of Sogano Yashiro

Reviewed:2020/04/25 石垣の上に鎮座
素戔嗚尊を祀る神社で出雲大社の本殿の裏側にありますが、石垣を積んでまわりよりも一段高いところに社殿が鎮座していました。素戔社が高くなるようにわざわざ石垣をつくったのでしょうか。
Reviewed:2020/04/05 スサノオノミコト
出雲大社の境内をぐるりと回ると行き当たる。本殿の北側というか裏側にある境内摂社だ。祭神は天照大神の弟で、大国主命の妻スセリヒメの父親でもあるスサノオノミコト。江戸期に建築されたもので、少し小ぶりだが、本殿と同じ大社造を採用している。いろんな伝説があり、拝礼後、後ろに回り、社に肩をあてると肩こりが治るとも聞いた。
Reviewed:2019/12/25 ご本殿裏
出雲大社のご祭神である大国主大神のお父様を祀っています。ご本殿の裏に位置します。ガイドさんが親はいつになっても子供の事を見守っていると話していたのが印象的でした。

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan's oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
