Imizu-jinja Shrine射水神社

Shrine

This shrine is located inside of Takaoka Kojo Park. Thought to have been built in the Nara period or earlier, this ancient and honorable shrine is the only shrine in Etchu Province selected as a Myojin Taisha, the highest rank of shrine in the Engi-Shiki. The shrine venerates Ninigi-no-mikoto, said to grant blessings of bumper crops and prosperity in business. 200,000 people visit the shrine each year during their annual new year's day festival. Imizu Saryo, a cafe area added during renovations of the shrine's event hall, is a place to enjoy the seasonal scenery along with exclusive items such as their original blended coffee, herb tea, Futan matcha tea au lait, and more.

Review of Imizu Shrine

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2015/11/27 Peaceful shrine
A peaceful shrine well situated in the center of the pleasant park. Though the shrine is meaningful for locals, there are no English signboards for foreigners.
Reviewed:2018/11/03 古城公園の中にあります
高岡古城公園の中にあります。
公園内には無料の駐車場があり、そこから約5分程度歩きました。
JR高岡駅から徒歩で約15分くらいです。
大きな公園内にあり周辺を運動したり散策している人たちを多く見かけましたが、神社内には静かな空気が流れています。
立派な建物でした。

大変気持ちの良い神社でした。私が参拝した時はちょうどお宮参りのご祈祷中でした。終わった頃にお参りして、宮司さんに御朱印をいただきました。宮司さんはお若いのに優しい方で色々お話ししてくださいました。

          Toyama is one of the three prefectures that house the Japanese Alps, with its southern and eastern borders comprising one long stretch of mountains, out of which the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is forged. While traditional crafts fill the northern coastal cities of Toyama and Takaoka, thatched roof houses offer unrivalled views against a backdrop of fantastic scenery at Gokayama in the mountainous area in the south of the prefecture.
