Kanda Shrine (Kanda Myojin) (神田神社(神田明神))

3.5

Temple

This shrine located in Soto-Kanda in Tokyo’s Chiyoda City boasts close to 1,300 years of history. In the past, this shrine was revered as the Edo Sochinju (the center place to pray for local gods) with a Soujigami (general local Shinto deity) that was the patron of Tokyo’s 108 towns. There are many commemorative photo spots including the impressive Shaden (main building) built in 1934 that is completely covered in bright vermillion as well as the “Chikara Ishi,” which is a big stone that was used by young people in competitions to show off their strength. The enshrined deities are Okuninushi no Mikoto (Daikokuten), Sukunahikona no Mikoto (Ebisu), and Taira no Masakado. The Kanda-matsuri festival held around mid-May is counted as one of the three largest Edo festivals. The shrine has even become famous in recent years for collaborations with anime works.

都内ではここが見つけられるだろうか。
あの歌詞にでてくる石が実際に見ることができる。妙な気分だがこれがさざれ石。

お茶の水駅から歩いて約5分、神田明神の中に、「君が代」に出てくるさざれ石があります。説明書の石もありますが、ひっそりとあるので見落とし注意です。

神田に短期滞在した際に訪れた「神田明神」で、日本の国家で謳われる「さざれ石」を目にすることが出来ました。もちろんこれ以外にも全国にさざれ石はありのですが、よほど意識していないと見落としてしまうほど、ひっそりと置かれていました。

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
