Takekoma-jinja Shrine (竹駒神社)

Inari Shrine in the center of Iwanuma City, is located about an 11 minute walk from Iwanuma Station. It is regarded as one of Japan’s three main Inari shrines, and is also known as “Takekoma Inari”. The shrine was established in 842, when Ono no Takamura was sent as the new lord of Mutsu who also wrote for the ogura hyakunin-isshu poems. It is a popular shrine with the first or second most visitors worshipping the god of food, clothing and shelter for the first prayer of the year every year. In addition, the “Hatsu Uma Festival” is held for seven days from the first Uma (horse) day (the seventh day of the twelve horary signs) of February (lunar calendar). The festival represents the first sign of spring and the shrine bustles with many visitors from both within and outside the prefecture.

Beautiful shrine in the centre of Iwanuma. Packed on holidays and for special family events, but serene at other times.

Takekoma shrine is called one of the three great Inari shrines in Japan. 15 minutes walk from Iwanuma station. Its not big, but soothing. Famous poet Basho came to Iwanuma, and made a Haiku.

          Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it's the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture's reputation as one of Japan's most scenic views.
