Hitokotonushi-jinja Shrine一言主神社

Shrine

This shrine is located in Joso City, Ibaraki Prefecture. From the teaching that one will be granted a fortune once in one’s life, this shrine is famous for the deity that grants a requested prayer, even if it is just spoken once. Hence the Hitokoto Myojin, meaning One Word Deity. Constructed in 809 A.D., many visit this spot year round. One of the few shrines visited at New Years, it attracts around 150,000 visitors annually during the 3 celebrated days of New Year, during which many booth shops line the entry way.

自家用車の無事故お祈りや、人生に迷った時は、一言で解決に向かう?らしいです。
桜の季節は、桜満開の静かな神社で、毎年9月13日には、例祭でからくり綱火が行われます。
Reviewed:2019/02/23 とても落ち着きます。
入口から複数の鳥居を抜けると、本殿に着きます。おすすめは本殿裏側の雑木林の中です。人も少なく、木々の間から光が差す空間はとても落ち着きます。
御朱印帖も社務所にて扱いがありますが、デザインがとても素敵でした。

          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ーone of Japan's Three Great Gardensーin spring to experience the cellestial blooming of fantastic cherry blossoms at the annual sakura festival.
