Oita Gokoku Jinja Shrine (大分縣護國神社)

A Shinto shrine located in Maki, Oita City. The shrine was founded in 1875 to enshrine those warriors who died in the Saga Rebellion the previous year. Thereafter, the shrine also came to be used to enshrine those who fell in the Satsuma Rebellion and the Shinpuren Rebellion, then those who died in wars from the First Sino-Japanese War onward. The temple’s grounds are a renowned destination for viewing plum and cherry blossoms in spring. A scenic lookout on the grounds also boasts a sweeping view of Oita City.

参拝に幾度も行きます。
先輩方の鎮魂は後輩の輩共の役目。
社会的責務を忘れない為に年1-2回訪れています。

新日鉄のベッドタウンである明野の町の下にある護国神社です。初詣は大分市内からたくさんの人が訪れる人気の神社です。日本一の破魔矢や熊手がインスタ映えスポットになっています。

駐車場は無料で広いものの、元旦の午後は非常に混雑して1時間以上待つことになりすま。できれば午前中に訪れることをお勧めします。駐車場へ入るには、一旦明野の坂を大分高専まで上ってからUターンする必要があります。混雑を避けるには、松...

護国神社は、国家のために殉難した人の霊(英霊)を祀るための神社のことを言います。
以前は招魂社と呼ばれていたが曖昧だった神社としての制度を明確にするため1939年に護国神社に改称してます。

東京都と神奈川県を除く道府県に指定護国神社が建立されていて、その道府県出身ないし縁故の戦死者、自衛官・警察官・消防士等の公務殉職者を主祭神とする神社です。

直接私の親族・御先祖が祀られてなくても、亡くなられ...

          A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don’t hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
