Kamayama-jinja Shrine (竈山神社)

A Shinto shrine dedicated to Hikoitsuse-no-mikoto. Visiting this shrine, Hinokuma Jingu Shrine, and Itakiso Jinja is known locally as the “Saigoku Three Shrine Pilgrimage.” The shrine is located a 10-minute walk south from Kamayama Station on the Wakayama Electric Railway Kishigawa Line. The location of the shrine can easily be identified by its large torii gate. The place name “Kamayama” appears in the “Kojiki” and the “Nihon shoki,” two of Japan’s oldest historical records, and it is believed that this is the place where Hikoitsuse-no-mikoto, elder brother to the very first emperor of Japan, Emperor Jinmu, was buried. In fact, a tomb for Hikoitsuse-no-mikoto stands behind the main shrine building; the death of his elder brother is said to have encouraged Emperor Jinmu to journey eastward instead of westward in his expedition to unite the country under his rule. Accordingly, the shrine is said to protect the security of Japan and the peace of and development of the world.

Review of Kamayama Shrine

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2021/04/29 三社参りの一社とのことです
ご主祭神は彦五瀬命で、式内社、旧官幣大社とのことです。元は村社だったのですが大正4年に官幣大社に昇格したとのことです。村社から官幣大社になったのは竈山神社が唯一とのことです。日前神宮・國懸神宮、竈山神社、伊太祁曽神社の三社参りの一社ですが、日曜日の訪問で、他の二箇所にはおまいりしている方が多数おられましたがここには人影はありませんでした。
Reviewed:2019/12/30 史実に基づく数少ない神社。
年末12/30に車で参拝しました。
鳥居の前に駐車場がありソコソコ広いです。
雨のおかげか参拝者はポツポツです。
ご祭神は彦五瀬命や御毛入命、稲飯命など神武(物部)東征で戦った方々...

          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.
