Koube no Miya Yomo Shrine頭之宮四方神社

Shrine

This shrine is affectionately referred to as “atama no miya-san” or “okashira-san” because of the benefits it is said to confer upon the upper parts of the body, particularly the head. According to legend, the skull of Karahashi Chujo Mitsumori was enshrined here in 1191. Many visit to pray for academic achievement, mercantile wisdom, healing for head injuries and illnesses, especially during exam season. The water of the “Koube fountain” close to the main building is said to grant wisdom, and the nearby “Koube stone” is said to heal illness. The closest station is Ouchiyama Station.

Review of Kobenomiya Yomo Shrine

Reviewed:2019/08/03 頭之水
神戸の水ではありません。頭(こうべ)之水です。これでコーヒーを淹れると結構おいしかったりします。小さな社ですが、年明け以降は受験生家族で賑わいます。豊富なお守りや、洋菓子店と組んだ「頭福(こうふく)のお菓子」など、なかなか商売熱心でもあります。なお、当家における過去のご利益は「並」クラスでした。

GWに熊野三山から伊勢神宮に向かう途中に立ち寄りました。駐車場から橋を渡り、鳥居をくぐると、正面に拝殿が見えます。拝殿の横から川原の方に向かうと頭の水、知恵の水と言われる御神水や頭の石などがあります。頭の神様ということで、子供連れの方が多く参られていました。

お守りの種類が多く、ステキなデザインでした。
参拝方法なども書いてあり、初心者にも優しくなっていました。

          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
