Moriminashi Hachiman Shrine森水無八幡神社

Shrine

"This old temple in a corner of the hot spring town is located approximately a ten-minute walk from Gero Station. From the Heian period to the Kamakura period (1185-1333), Hida craftsmen carved ten wooden idols that are stored here, and all of them have been designated as national important cultural properties. Every year on February 14th, there is a traditional festival called ""Tanokami Festival"" to usher in spring in Hidaji area. It is said to be based on ritual performances done since the middle ages so as to celebrate an abundant harvest of rice in advance. It is also nicknamed the ""Hanagasa Festival"" because of the local young dancers who wear brightly colored hanagasa hats, and this has been designated a national important intangible cultural asset."

駅の対岸にあります。階段は結構急でした。境内は街中の神社といった感じです。人はいませんがお賽銭箱の近くに書置き御朱印があります。

落ち着いた雰囲気の神社です。
ただ、御朱印は書き置きのスタイルで置いてありましたが、日付は自分で記入するスタイルが残念でした。

静かに佇む神社です。かなり清い空気が流れてる気がしました。駅から近く、小さいですが行く価値はあります。

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
