Nagataki Hakusan Shrine長滝白山神社

Shrine

Nagataki Hakusan Shrine, located in the city of Gujo, is a shrine of the Hakusan group that worships Mt. Hakusan as the water god. Once part of the Hakusan Chugu Choryuji Temple, founded by the monk Taicho in the eighth century, it split off from the temple in the 1870s, when the Japanese government forced Buddhism and Shinto to start functioning as separate religions. There are stone lanterns said to be products of the Kamakura period (1185-1334) on the shrine grounds, and the treasure house contains many cultural artifacts, such as Showa no tsubo, Teboko (hand spear), and No drama masks. Among them are items that have been designated National Important Cultural Properties. Every year on January 6, the shrine celebrates a festival that has been designated a National Important Intangible Folk Cultural Property, Nagataki no Ennen. In the midst of dancing, visitors try to grab flowers, such as cherry blossoms and peonies, that are hung from the ceiling of the main building. This custom gives the festival its other name, the flower grabbing festival.

Reviewed:2019/05/11 白山の登山口
国道158号線沿いにあり、長良川鉄道の白山長滝駅からも歩いてすぐなので、車でも鉄道でも行きやすいです。白山の岐阜県側の登山口(といってもかなり長い参詣道)として、古くから信仰されてきた神社だそうで、お参りしてから山に登る方の姿も見受けられました。

令和元旦の日に、お参りさせていただきました。

築150年という社殿は、圧巻です。そして同じ境内にお寺もある、不思議な場所でした。

御朱印を書いていただきましたが、とても丁寧に(御朱印帳を神棚で)お祓いしていただき、感激しました。また、いろいろと歴史についてのお話も伺うことができました。

境内入口の樹齢850年という巨樹も、素晴らしい存在感でした☆

始めて参拝させていただきましたが、道の駅近く、わかりやすい場所にあります。参道もきれいで、趣のある神社です。

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
