Hitachinokuni Izumo Taisha Shrine (常陸国出雲大社)

About a seven-minute walk from Fukuhara Station on the JR Mito Line, Hitachinokuni Izumo Taisha is a shrine for worshipping mainly the Okuninushi, dedicated in 1992. There is the main hall where the presiding god sits in repose, as well as the Yakushin Shrine for medical needs and Ryujya Shrine for protection from water. The grounds include multiple cemeteries—even a pet cemetery—for religious and funeral ceremonies, as well as a restaurant serving Inaniwa udon, a glass studio— “Izumokan,” and an art gallery— “Sakurabayashi-kan.”

Reviewed:2017/02/09 One of the more interesting shrines in Kasama!
The huge rope thing (I dont know what its called) is really interesting. You can try to toss a coin upwards and try to get it stuck in between the fibres of the rope. Remember to walk to the back...

The ropes in front of the shrine are quite impressive, making the shrine worth a short visit. The main shrine (the one with the ropes) is fairly new, and so not that exciting in and of itself. The...

新しいながらも、とても立派でよいたたずまいの社殿でしたが、
「出雲大社の巨大注連縄に五円玉を投げて突き刺さるとご利益がもらえる」っていう失礼極まりない迷信を、大騒ぎしながら実践している家族などが多く、ガッカリしました。本家の出雲大社では、この蛮行を禁ずるために、注連縄に網をかけているっていうのに……。
心を静めて参拝しているその横で、五円玉が地面に落ちる音がチャリン、チャリン!とやかましく、ひどい...

          Just a stone's throw from Tokyo, Ibaraki is a coastal prefecture that has mastered juxtapositions, where old shrines meet new scientific discoveries and traditional gardens are frequented by the inventors of some of the newest technology. Head to Mito City's Kairakuen - one of Japan's Three Great Gardens - in spring to experience the cellestial blooming of fantastic cherry blossoms at the annual sakura festival.
