Shrine

This shrine is located ten minutes by car from the Joetsu Interchange, at the foot of Mt. Kasuga in Joetsu City. Enshrined here is a division of the deity in the Kasuga Grand Shrine in Nara. It was the first deity to be divided in Japan, according to records in Kasuga Grand Shrine. The shrine was first built on Mt Kasuga's peak in the year 958, and then relocated along with Kasugayama Castle fortifications in 1381. The cedar trees lining the steep stone steps are rather impressive. The shrine prospered under Uesugi, the Shugodai (representative) of Echigo for generations, and from the time of Kenshin Uesugi, belief in this deity became more intense and it became worshipped as the tutelary deity of the region. The Kasuga lanterns lining the grounds are said to have been made in the Edo period.

その昔、越後国のそう鎮守社として、奈良の春日大社から分社されたものだそうです。
駐車場が狭いのですが、訪れる人は少ないので、ちょっと待てば駐車できます。
急な階段を上ると、狛犬に守られた社殿があるのですが、現在は、建て替え中で借仮社殿に鎮座しています。(完成時期不明)
静かなお宮さんです。

2019年6月現在、修復中です。奈良県の春日神社から分けてこちらに祀ったと言っておられました。行きましたが修復中なので残念でした。

高田の100万人観桜会に行く途中に立ち寄りました。春日山神社と春日山城跡に寄ったあと、高田市に移動する途中に赤い鳥居があります。駐車場は鳥居を潜った先に数台停められます。参道は杉並木となっており、階段を上がると春日神社があります。春日山神社より歴史が古いとの事です。本殿は改修中ですので隣の仮殿に参拝をしました。
