自然信仰から生まれた神社だそうです。ちいさhしゃでんですが、そこがまたすてきな雰囲気に包まれています。

武門の棟梁物部氏の総氏神として古代信仰の象徴とされてきた布留山の北西麓に鎮座する石上神宮。そのシンボル的な拝殿が国宝に指定されています。平安時代に白河天皇が寄進された物だそうです。かつては本殿がなく拝殿後方の禁足地を御本地と称し祭神が埋斎されていたそうです。拝殿と同じく楼門も素晴らしいです。
Reviewed:2019/09/22 国宝の拝殿
大神神社と同じく石上神宮も自然崇拝から発生した信仰であり、長い間、本殿はなかった。本殿が設けられたのは明治時代に入ったからだ。民にとっては拝殿が本殿のようなものだったはずだ。この拝殿は白河天皇が1081(永保元)年に京都御所の神嘉殿を寄進したとされる。建築様式は鎌倉時代に区分されるというが、いずれにしても拝殿としては現存する最古の建築という。楼門とともに神宮のイメージをかたどっている存在だ。

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
