Niutsuhime Shrine丹生都比売神社

Shrine

You’ll find this shrine along Prefectural Route 4 in Kamiamano, Katsuragi Town. Niutsuhime’s child is enshrined here, and it is said that Takanomiko, enshrined in the second hall, transformed into a hunter and led Kobo Daishi to Mt. Koya, who then borrowed Niutsuhime’s holy land to erect a shrine atop the mountain and teach the secrets of Shingon esoteric Buddhism. It is customary to worship here before ascending Mt. Koya.

世界遺産の丹生都比売神社の紅葉を観に行ってきました。こちらの太鼓橋は風情があります。
午前10時に参拝したので、人も少なくてよかったです。

高野山と深い所縁のある、丹生都比売神社。歴史を調べてから行った方が、感動の仕方もまた、一段と深くなると思います。
Reviewed:2018/10/21 山里にある霊験新たかな神社さんです。
千年以上前から歴史に残る天野地区に佇んでいます。高野山にも近く、世界遺産のひとつとして登録されています。
社はとても立派で、良くこのような田舎に・・と畏怖の念を抱きます。
桧皮葺の屋根は2ミリメートルの厚さの皮を幾重にも重ねたものです。桧は皮を剥がれても再生するそうで、人間と自然の共生ですね、とは宮司さんの説明でした。
お参りするだけで心洗われる、素晴らしい環境にある神社です。

          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.
