Yoshino-Jingu Shrine (吉野神宮)

Yoshino-Jingu Shrine is a Shinto shrine located near Yoshino-Jingu Station on the Kintetsu Railway Yoshino Line. It was constructed in 1889 on the orders of the Meiji Emperor; the main deity enshrined here is Emperor Go-Daigo. The recently-constructed Honden (Main Hall) and Haiden (Hall of Worship) are oriented in a north-facing direction, towards the city of Kyoto, and built in the Sohinoki-zukuri style (a modern style of shrine construction, which uses only Japanese cypress wood); the Shrine precincts are renowned as a marvelous place for viewing cherry blossom in spring. The Autumn Festival which is held at the Yoshino-Jingu Shrine on September 27 every year includes a performance of the Urayasu-no-mai Dance dedicated to the gods, as well as dances accompanied by traditional folk songs, the reciting of poems for the entertainment of the gods, etc., making this a wonderful opportunity to experience aspects of traditional Japanese culture.

Lovely place. No one else there on the morning I visited. Lovely walk down a broad path through maple trees. This place must be spectacular in autumn when the leaves turn.

1889年に明治天皇が後醍醐天皇の偉業を称えるために創立を指示された神社。吉野の地の入口のような場所に鎮座しています。 最寄りは吉野神宮駅ですが歩くと1.5kmくらいあります。

さすが天皇家の人物を祀る神宮。静寂につつまれ荘厳な雰囲気。
広々とした境内に総檜造の社殿をはじめ鳥居や神門などが素晴らしいです。

後醍醐天皇のもとに天皇親政の復活を目指した建武の中興は失敗に終わり、北朝と南朝と言う二つ...

数十年振りにお詣りしました。ほぼ記憶から忘れ去られていましたが、北向かいの鳥居から覗く山々は、こんなにも雄大で、この地が見晴らしの良い場所にあったのだと、しみじみ。
境内も至ってシンプルであり、配置されている全てが、静まり返って、主祭神を厳かに祀っている感です。
いつまでも、この静けさを守ってほしいものです。

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
