Miyajidake-jinja Shrine宮地嶽神社

Shrine

This Shinto shrine is dedicated to Empress Jingu, Katsumura-no-Okami and Katsuyori-no-Okami. A large number of visitors come to pay homage to the gods of business success, road safety and family security. The special shimenawa rope hung at the inner shrine is 11 meters long and weighs 3 tons, making it Japan’s largest. The Okunomiya Fudo Jinja Shrine at the back of the shrine is located inside a large stone chamber belonging to the Maruzuka Kofun ancient tomb. Twice a year, the sun setting into the sea shines a light on the torii gate and road up to the shrine, creating a “road of light” leading to the shrine. This appears in February and October, so be sure to visit after checking the schedule.

宮地嶽神社は神功皇后を主祭神とする神社で福津市に鎮座しています。
大注連縄や、玄界灘へまっすぐ伸びる参道で有名。
宮地浜海水浴場に面したところに鳥居があります。
本殿は屋根が金色で正面からは拝殿に隠れて分かりませんが裏手に行くと分かります。
また裏手に5分ほどのところには奥の宮八社があり、こちらも八社参りとしてかなりの人が参拝します。
アクセスは基本車ですが、最寄り駅の福間駅からバスも出ています...

          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.
