Itakiso-jinja Shrine (伊太祁曽神社)

A Shinto shrine dedicated to Isotakeru-no-mikoto. This shrine is ancient and its name in an entry dated 702 in the “Shoku Nihongi” imperial history anthology. The shrine was moved to its current location a three-minute walk south of Idakiso Station on the Kishigawa Line in 713. In addition to the main shrine building, there is also a Miisha Shrine dedicated to gods of water and wells, and a boulder known as the “Monkey Rock” which is said to cure any diseases from the neck up when rubbed; both of these have gained popularity in recent years as mystical “power spots.” The Uzue Festival held here each year on the date of the Little New year attracts many visitors. During the festival, bowls of azuki-gayu rice gruel with azuki beans are handed out and eating this is said to guarantee sound health for an entire year.

年末12/30に車で向かいました。
社務所横に広い駐車場があります。
以外にも外国人観光客が数組しかいませんでした。一ノ宮なのでもっと混んでるかと思いましたが。
ご祭神は五十猛命と大屋姫命。
神社の由緒書きとは異なるが、文献によると二柱は夫婦でその子は、紀国造の高倉下命。木の神としてというより祖神と考える方が納得がいく気がする。
神社向かいにある古墳が何よりの証拠かと思います。
また龍神様や磐座が...

ちょうど参拝の当日は茅輪祭でした。
ちょうど茅の輪くぐりをして穢れを祓いたいと思っていたので、ありたくくぐらせてもらいました。
いろんな方が家族でやってきて、茅の輪をくぐって楽しそうに境内で過ごされていたのが印象的でした。

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
