Munakata-taisha Shrine宗像大社

Temple

A Shinto shrine dedicated to the three goddesses of the Munakata Sanjo-shin, “Munakata Grand Shrine” is actually a collective term for the three shrines of the Okitsumiya on the island of Okinoshima, the Nakatsunomiya on Oshima, and the Hetsumiya on Tashima. Providing protection when driving and riding transportation, the shrine is visited by great numbers of people. The shrine’s treasure hall displays numerous artifacts designated as National Treasures, including weapons, bronze mirrors, and accessories believed to have been used in external trade in ancient times.

Review of Munakata Taisha Hetsugu Shrine

Reviewed:2018/11/27 世界遺産の神社
世界遺産に登録されている大きな神社です。この神社のハイライトは、沖ノ島で発見された国宝の銅鏡が展示されている神宝館です。歴史の教科書に載っている本物の銅鏡を間近で見ることができ、感激しました。
Reviewed:2018/11/27 少し時間の余裕をもって!
パンフレットには、天皇の祖先神・天照大神の御子神である田心姫神(沖津宮)・湍津姫神(中津宮)・市杵島姫神(辺津宮)の宗像三女神が、天照大神の神勅によって降臨され歴代天皇を守護奉るとあります。
参拝の推奨ルートとして、本殿・拝殿、高宮祭場、第二宮、第三宮、神宝館になっていますが、他にも御神木など見所が多く、フリータイム内では国宝や重要文化財が展示されている神宝館を見学出来ませんでした
Reviewed:2018/11/18 駅からもアクセス良い
駅からはバスが頻繁に出ていてアクセス良好です。また駐車場もかなり広大です。かなり近代的な社務所があり御朱印等も常時いただけます。753シーズンでアンパンマンの菊人形がかざってありました。

          The most northerly of Kyushu island’s prefectures, Fukuoka comprises castle towns, seaside parks, and Hakata ramen, one of Japan’s most famous noodle dishes. Whether due to its good location or its unique charm, the prefecture’s capital, Fukuoka city, has been voted one of the most desirable places to live in the country—a close-knit community, a thriving food scene, and accessible nature combine for irresistibly laid-back city vibes.
