Chiryu Shinto Shrine (知立神社)

A Shinto shrine standing along the Toyota-Minami Bypass in Nishi-machi Jinden, Chiryu City. According to legend, the temple was founded during the reign of Japan's 12th emperor, Emperor Keiko (71-130). In the Edo period, the shrine was counted as one of the three major shrines on the Tokaido highway. Believed to grant protection from mamushi pit vipers, a poisonous variety of snake which lives in the region, the shrine was once frequented by Tokaido travelers. The Chiryu Festival is held each year on May 2 and 3. The full festival is held every second year, and during this time five spectacular traditional shrine floats are put on parade. National Important Intangible Folk-Cultural Property-designated ningyo joruri puppet theater performances are also conducted.

Review of Chiryu Shrine

Reviewed:2019/07/22 地元では有名な社
江戸時代は長虫(マムシなど)よけなどのお札を求め全国から行脚してお参りに来ていたほどの有名な神社です。
境内に駐車場があり便利ですよ。
初夏の花しょうぶもキレイです。

明治神宮から株分けをした菖蒲だそうです。6月には、見事に咲き誇っています。ちょっと奥まったところにあるので車に方は、ナビをセットするといいと思います。池のところの茶店で大あんまきも食べられます。
Reviewed:2019/05/08 神社という神社
伊勢神宮、熱田神宮とこの知立神社と大変格式の高い神社であるようです。普段は、お店があるわけでもなく、車で境内まで行けて、すぐに手洗い場があり、本堂という感じですぐにお参りができるくらいの広さ。
隣にカキツバタ?花しょうぶ?が咲いてる公園がある。5-6月くらいに咲くらしい。私は5月3日の知立祭を見に行ったのだが、
山車が5台勢ぞろいする。この祭りの面白いのは山車を後ろの男の人が8人くらいで担ぐところ...

          Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
