Niu Kanshobu-jinja Shrine (丹生官省符神社)

This shrine is located in Jison-in in Kudoyama Town and was built in 816 by Kobo-Daishi (Kukai). Legend has it that he was guided to Mt. Koya by Kariba Myojin’s white and black dogs, and these dogs are now worshiped as divine messengers who guide the living. The area was designated a World Heritage Site in 2004 called the “Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range.”

Reviewed:2017/05/06 A lot of steps to climb
I attended the Sanada Festival and happened to be in the area of the information center. This old temple is a short walk from the information center. The stairs are adjoining the Jison-in Temple...

高野山に行く道中にある「丹生官省符神社」へ訪問しました。
慈尊院の奥にある急な階段を上っていくと、鳥居や本殿が見えてきます。
高野山ほど人が来ないせいか、静かな雰囲気が漂ってます。
Reviewed:2019/11/24 階段がすごい
慈尊院のとなりなのですが、なかなかの階段をあがります。とても静かな境内です。社務所もありますが小さくて静かです。

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country's most delicious ramen noodles.
