Shrine

Tenkawa Daibenzaiten-sha Shrine (Tenkawa-jinja) is a shrine dedicated to Benzaiten (Sarasvati), the deity of art and music. It is considered one of the Three Great Shrines of Benzaiten. The shrine is famous for attracting many entertainers to its doors. It also has a history of being the place where the Buddhist monk, Kobo Daishi, retreated to for a thousand days. The solemn atmosphere found here in the mountains cleanses the heart and in recent years it has become popular as a power spot. There is also a large collection of valuable artifacts related to Noh, and Noh performances are held at the shrine three times a year.

年の初めはここからスタート。
年初めの登山前にご挨拶。
凛とした空気漂うこの時期が一番好き。
シーンとした空気の中五十鈴を上手くならせるか。
まずはそこ。
その後に古代文字?のおみくじは他にはないよね。

大晦日に車で向かいました。
駐車場は広いです。
ぱらぱらと参拝者もいます。

国道309から来るとすぐなのですが、国道168からだと細い道を30分ぐらい走ります。
十津川温泉から向かったのですが、道を間違えてカーナビに再検索して貰った道を進むとリカバリーに3,40分ぐらいかかりました。しかもとんでもない山道を。間違えたら、Uターンが正解です。

ご祭神は市杵島姫命。
物部一族の祖神です。

          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.
