Toyosaka Shrine (豊栄神社)

3.0

Shrine

This shrine stands next to Noda Shrine, which is known to have one of the best Noh theaters in Japan. It is dedicated to Motonari Mori, who elevated the Mori clan to one of the greatest feudal lords of western Japan during the Age of Warring States. When Motonari's grandson, Terumoto, moved his castle to Hagi after his forced relocation, the spirit of Motonari was enshrined in Kasuga Shrine. The shrine was moved to Yamaguchi in the Meiji period (1868-1912), and the shrine was built and relocated at its present location. The name Toyosaka was bestowed by the Imperial Court. In 1882, it became an Imperial Shrine of Special Status, enshrining those who had made special contributions to the nation.

This shrine is dedicated to Mori Motonari, a famous Samurai chief. At the entrance, there is a dry moat, and the ambience is somewhat majestic. Noda shrine is just next to this shrine, but there are...

隣の菜香亭と野田神社参拝の際一緒に参拝しました。こちらは同じような社殿配置ですが祭神が毛利家中興の祖戦国時代の毛利元就になります。隣の野田神社よりさらに奥まった場所に有るので静かでうっそうとした森の中に埋没してる感じがします。

山口駅から周辺を観光にて立ち寄りました。毛利元就をまつる神社です。豊栄の名前は、朝廷から賜った神号だそうです○

          Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
