Aoshima Jinja

Shrine
Located in the center of Aoshima Island, this Shinto shrine is dedicated to Hori no mikoto, Toyotama-hime no mikoto, and Shiozutsu no ookami, known in widely in Japan through the Japanese myth called “Yamasachihiko, Umisahihiko.” The shrine’s grounds are the entire island of Aoshima, a designated Special Natural Monument; in ancient times, the general public was prohibited from setting foot on the sacred grounds of the island. Worshippers were freely allowed to visit the island starting in the Meiji period, and today it is visited by many asking for luck in love and marriage, easy childbirth, safe travels, and safety while driving. The grounds are lush with tropical plants and a distinct, equatorial pervades the island. A 10-minute walk from Aoshima Station.

    青島の中心的な場所である青島神社の境内にある小さな施設で、最初は社務所化と思ったのですが、有料の施設でした。隣に茶房「檳榔樹(びろうじゅ?)」があり、甘乳蘇(かんにゅうそ)と言う乳製品を販売してました。

    青島神社の境内で参道に進む途中の左側のコンクリートの建物です。天照大御神から始まる日本建国の神話を蝋人形で視覚的にも分かり易く説明してます。拝観料大人600円がもう少し安かったら皆さん入館するんでしょうが…
