Sasutahiko Shrine刺田比古神社

Shrine

"This is the guardian shrine of Wakayama Castle and is located the south of the castle's Okaguchi Gate in the Kataoka district. Known to locals as the ""Oka no Miya,"" the shrine's history extends back over 1,000 years. The shrine is dedicated to Michiomi-no-Mikoto, ancestor god of the Otomo clan, and his grandson Otomo-no-Sadehiko-no-Mikoto. The shrine is also believed to grant worshippers improved fortunes due to its association with Tokugawa Yoshimune, the fifth lord of Kishu Domain, who experienced much success in life, and people from across the country come here seeking better luck. The shrine enshrines the beloved horse of Yoshimune as a sacred horse, and the faithful worship it as a deity providing better fortunes and protection from evil. The Oka no Sato Kofun tomb, estimated to date to around the sixth century, is also located on the shrine's grounds and can be viewed by visitors for free."

Reviewed:2019/07/17 徳川吉宗の拾い親の神社
徳川吉宗にちなみ、絵馬が徳川吉宗の絵馬があります。神社はあまり広くなく、目立つものもありませんでした。
Reviewed:2019/01/06 岡公園の脇を進みます
岡公園のすぐ脇に大きな石柱があります。こちらが参道のようです。徳川吉宗にゆかりのあるお寺という事で、歴史好きな方には特にお奨めしたいスポットです。
Reviewed:2018/09/26 2億円の計画
本殿修復の事業計画があるらしく、昔の威容あるものにしたいと言う声が集まっているとのことで、寄付を呼び掛ける案内板が立っています。事業費は、2億円だそうです。

          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.
