Suwa Grand Shrine Shimosha Akimiya諏訪大社下社秋宮

Shrine

A Shinto shrine located in Shimosuwa Town, Suwa County, Nagano Prefecture. The Akimiya is one of six shrines which comprise Suwa Grand Shrine, the head shrine of some 25 thousand Suwa shrines located across the country. Worshipped for providing abundant harvests and granting bravery since ancient times, in recent times the shrine has also come to be worshipped for protecting life and livelihood. The Kagura-den hall, with an eye-catching giant rope hanging in front, and the two-storied Heihai-den (worship and offering hall) are designated Important Cultural Properties. Other shrine highlights include the Neiri no Sugi, an 800-year old Japanese cedar tree. The shrine is famous for the Ombashira Festival held every seven years, as well as the Boat Festival (Ofune Matsuri) held on August 1.

Review of Suwa Taisha Shimosha Akimiya

Reviewed:2018/10/21 神楽殿・弊拝殿・御柱など見どころ満載の秋宮。成長運・発展運・財運アップのご利益がある!!
諏訪大社には上社(2箇所)と下社(2箇所)が諏訪湖の周りに存在します。上社は茅野市と諏訪市、下社は下諏訪町にあり、主宰神は上社の本宮が建御名方神、上社の前宮が八坂刀売神を、下社は建御名方神と八坂刀売神の両方です。

上社と下社とありますが社格は同じであり、伊勢神宮のような外宮→内宮と言うような参拝する順番の決まりごとはなく、外宮または内宮だけをお参りする「片参り」のような縁起が良くないこともないの...
Reviewed:2018/10/21 春宮の次に行ってきた。
春宮を見たあとで行ってきたが、こんなに離れているとは思いませんでした。からくり時計は期待したほどではありませんでした。有名な塩羊羹を買おうと思いましたが小分けしたものは時間が合わず変えません。残念です。
Reviewed:2018/10/14 出雲と同じ注連縄
諏訪大社の上社本宮より、下社秋宮がとても興味深いです。出雲大社と同じ大きな注連縄が圧巻です。きっといつも出雲を懐かしく思っていたのでしょう。

          Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country's most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
