Matsubara Hachiman Shrine (松原八幡神社)

Shrine

This Hachimangu Shrine is in Shirahama-cho, Himeji City, Hyogo Prefecture. It honors three gods: Hondawake-no-Mikoto, Okinagatarashihime-no-Mikoto, and Hime Okami. It's said the shrine was built in 763 after fishermen pulled up a sacred tree from the sea. There's a lively fighting festival every year on October 14 and 15 when participants bash into each other while carrying portable shrines. The festival has been designated an Important Intangible Folk Cultural Property in Hyogo Prefecture and Himeji City, and it's well-known nationwide.

          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.
