Morioka Tenmangu Shrine (盛岡天満宮)

3.5

Shrine

A seven-minute walk from the Tenmangu-mae bus station, accessible by bus from Morioka Station. At this shrine located on top of a small hill in Morioka City, the god of learning—Sugawara no Michizane is worshipped. Quietly dignified amid the rich greenery, the shrine sits peacefully on a hill overlooking the town. This is a place where Takuboku Ishikawa, a famous poet used to come to read or stroll in his days as a student. The humorous komainu statues perched above a stone inscribed with lyrics written by Takuboku are a sight worth seeing. Takuboku lovingly called them “Ishiuma”, and they are said to have appeared in his novel called “Souretsu.”

Review of Morioka Tenmangu Shrine

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/05/14 啄木少年が好きだった場所
岩手県盛岡市新庄町の小高い丘にある神社。
石川啄木が中学時代に訪れた散策場所で、啄木お気に入りの人の顔をした珍しい狛犬や芭蕉塚、銭湧石とも言われている石割梅、啄木の歌碑、高橋煙山の句碑、高橋青湖の句碑など見どころが多い所です。

天満宮なので当然、学問・文芸の神、菅原道真公を祀り、受験生などの訪問も多いみたいでたくさんの絵馬が掛けられてました。

小高い丘にあるため、盛岡の街並みが境内からよく見え...
Reviewed:2019/12/07 マイナーですが、風情のある神社
岩山公園から徒歩25分くらいでアクセスしました。
木々に囲まれている神社で、盛岡八幡宮のように有名ではないですが、
建物に木造で歴史を感じさせるパワースポット的な神社でした。
Reviewed:2018/06/30 涼みに
暑かったので木々の生い茂る天満宮に参拝。
学問の神様を祀ってあるとのことなので、お賽銭も子供と。
狛犬も変わったデザインで斬新。

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region’s delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you’ll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
