Tachiki-jinja Shrine立木神社

Shrine

A Shinto shrine situated along Prefectural Route 141 in Kusatsu, Kusatsu City. Founded in 767, the shrine is dedicated to Takemikazuchi-no-mikoto. After the shogun general Sakanoue no Tamuramaro prayed here for protection from misfortune during his subjugation of the northeast and gifted a figure of the Great Perfection of Wisdom Sutra to the shrine, the shrine came to be seen as providing worshippers with protection from evil and traffic safety.

Reviewed:2017/12/25 県内で「立木さん」と云うと観音さんの安養寺と思いがちですが
ここは平地にある「立木さん」。ここは古社で1200数十年前に創建されたらしい。厄除開運と交通安全の大神としても有名です。坂上田村麻呂将軍が東北鎮圧に際して道中安全と厄除開運を祈願して大般若経を寄進したとの伝承も残っています。ここが東海道と中山道の分岐点でもあり色々な地方の産物や習わしもここで融合していたみたいです。それにしても新年であったせいか、とんでもない人出と云うか、凄い参詣者の数でした。

          Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
