Kotohira-gu Shrine金刀比羅宮

Shrine

Kotohira-gu Shrine is a Shinto shrine located halfway up Mt. Zozu (which is 521 meters high) in Kotohira Town; it is commonly known as Konpira-san. There are a number of legends concerning the origins of the shrine, all of which suggest a mixture of Shinto and Buddhist influences. Besides the principal kami (deity) of the shrine, O-mono-nushi-no-kami, the spirit of the Sutoku Emperor is also worshipped there. O-mono-nushi-no-mikoto is worshipped as the guardian deity of seafarers. Besides the Homotsu-kan (Treasure Hall) and the Omote Sho-in hall, there are many other fascinating things to see, including the Takahashi Yuichi Hall, where oil paintings by the renowned artist Takahashi Yuichi are on display.

Review of Kompiragu Treasure House

Reviewed:2019/09/21 今回は
宝物館に立ち寄ってみようと、入口の前まで行きましたが、入館料800円と少し高めなので、時間がないこともあって、入館しませんでした。
Reviewed:2019/07/14 和洋折衷の美しい建物
香川県産「青木石」の花崗石造による二層建、屋根は入母屋造で瓦葺、玄関は唐破風造の銅板葺、という和洋折衷の重厚な建物です。建物の内装を含めた美しさと展示物はなかなかのものです。入館料は800円、興味がなければ高いと感じるかと思います。
Reviewed:2019/02/24 三十六歌仙額
金刀比羅宮本宮へ向かう石段の途中にある。入館料は800円。
建物は1905年に建てられた石造の2階建てで国の登録有形文化財に指定されている。展示ケースも年季が入ったものであり味わいがある。狩野探幽などが描いた三十六歌仙額、かつて旭社の本尊であった十一面観音立像などを見ることができる。

          Japan’s smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone’s throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa’s prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country’s best gardens.
