Hoto-jinja Shrine (宝当神社)

Visited by great throngs of people seeking luck due to this Shinto shrine’s name, which means “to strike upon treasure,” the numerous winners of large lottery prizes who attribute their good fortune to the shrine has resulted in it become famous almost overnight as the “lottery-winning shrine.” Today, the shrine is visited by some 200 thousand people annually. A reservation is required to engage in go-kitou (a prayer ceremony). The shrine’s Hitto-mamori (which provides luck with winning in games of chance and other situations) and other charms are also popular souvenirs.

高島へ渡る為に唐津城近くの城下桟橋へ。本来は定期連絡船に乗って高島に渡る予定だったが、既に出港済で次に来るのが随分時間がかかるので海上タクシーを利用する事に。Webで高島へ渡っている人の情報を見ると大半が行きは海上タクシーで帰りは定期連絡船という。小型漁船であろう海上タクシーに乗船していざ高島へ。料金は大人1人500円。

参拝は先に高島の守護神が祀られている塩屋神社に参拝後、宝当神社に参拝をおス...

テレビなどでよく紹介される神社なので、「うわさ」を信じて??行きました。JR唐津駅を降りて徒歩10分程度、渡船乗場には観光バスツアーの人もいて一杯でした。10分ほどのミニクルーズを楽しみ高島に上陸。お土産売場の方と猫?の熱心なお出迎えがあります。何やら宝くじが当たるよう、くじを入れる金色の布袋を買うように…とのこと。別に買わなくても神社に行けるので、まずはお参りに、道には猫足の目印があるので、迷い...

JR唐津駅から宝当桟橋へ行き(歩いて15-20分)、定期船「ニューたかしま」(片道210円)で島へいきます。JR唐津駅の観光案内所にフェリーの時刻表が貼ってあります。唐津城ながめながら10分くらいで島に到着。

フェリーから降りて「神社はこちら」の道しるべに従って歩いて5分くらいで宝当神社に到着。

せっかくなので、周辺を散歩すると、首輪をつけていない猫がちらほらといます。ちょっとした猫島のようで...

          Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu’s Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
