Takatsu Kakinomoto Shrine (高津柿本神社)

4.5

Shrine

"A Shinto shrine a 10-minute drive from Masuda Station on the JR San-in Main Line. Dedicated to Kakinomoto-no-Hitomaro, a poet whose works appear in the ancient ""Manyoshu"" poetry anthology, this shrine is seen as the head shrine of all Kakinomoto shrines nationwide. Believed to grant worshippers safe childbirth and aid in scholarly endeavors, it is said many people also come here to pray for fulfillment in love due to the many love poems Kakinomoto-no-Hitomaro wrote. Beyond the shrine's stone steps, visitors are greeted by the neat and tidy main shrine building, which is built in a modified version of the traditional Kasuga-zukuri style. The main shrine building is built facing Tsuwano to make it easier to pray to the shrine when coming from that town. During the annual Hassaku Festival held on September 1st, the grounds bustle with people come to watch the horseback archery event."

実は人麻呂さんは 奈良の人と勝手に思っていたので びっくりしました。立派な社殿が有り 奥まったところに檜皮葺の屋根が見えたのですが 近くに行く事が出来ない様になっていました。残念でした。

益田市の高津柿本神社。
万葉集の随一の歌人、柿本人麻呂を祀る。人麻呂は石見地方で終焉を迎えました。
人麻呂像は、さすがに筆を持って歌を詠む姿。
江戸時代の再建の社殿ですが、どっしりとした趣あるものです。

節分の豆まきがあるということで、高津柿本神社に行ってきました。
健康の為、家からウオーキングで行きました。麓には、植木市や屋台もでていました。石段を1つ1つ登っていきようやく到着...

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan’s oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
