Sugi-no-Osugi Japanese Cedar (杉の大スギ)

3.0

Precious Wood

This large cedar tree, a Special Natural Monument of Japan, is located on the grounds of Yasaka Shrine in Sugi, Otoyo Town, Nagaoka County. Some 60 meters tall, the tree is actually comprised of two separate trees referred to as Minami Osugi (''south large cedar'') and Kita Osugi (''north large cedar'') respectively. It is also known as the Meoto Sugi (''married cedar'') and the Shusse Sugi (''success cedar''). Legend has it that the tree, estimated to be around 3,000 years old, was planted by the Shinto deity Susanoo-no-Mikoto. Many people visit to pray for better fortune or for luck in marriage.

Review of Nihon Ichi Osugi Museum

Reviewed:2017/12/11 杉の大杉境内にある
杉の大杉は、日本一の大きさを誇る杉が祀られている神社で、境内に資料館があります。昔ながらの農機具や明治?大正期の資料があり、地味ですがそれなりに見応えがありました。
Reviewed:2017/08/03 大杉と八坂神社の境内にあります。
雑然と展示がしてありますが、木の天然記念物一覧や古民具の展示があります。大杉と八坂神社参拝の後に見学が良いでしょう。
Reviewed:2016/06/05 八坂神社境内
杉の大杉を有する八坂神社の境内にありました。拝殿とは逆方向の為、社務所の扱いかと思って覗いてみたところ資料館となっていました。訪問した時間の所為なのか、無人状態で何となく怪しい感じもして早々に退散しました。杉に関するものだけでは無く、民俗資料館と云った方が良さそうでした。

          The largest of Shikoku’s prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island’s most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you’re a pilgrim or not, Kochi’s 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
