Tsushima Shrine is a Shinto shrine in Tsushima, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. Nationally famous, it heads the Tsushima shrine network, dedicated to the so-called Tsushima Cult. This Tōkai-centered network with its about-3,000-member shrines is the tenth-largest in the country. The main kami of this faith are, the god of pestilences, and Susanoo, two deities which have been conflated together. For this reason, like other shrines of the network it is also called Tsushima Gozutennō-sha. Shrine legend says that Gozutennō's aramitama (its violent side) stays at Izumo-taisha, whereas its nigemitama (calm aspect) came to Japan from the Korean peninsula after stopping in Tsushima Island, between Korea and Japan. This may explain the relationship between the two Tsushimas suggested by the common name. The shrine holds a festival called Tsushima Matsuri in the sixth month of the lunar calendar (July in the gregorian calendar) during which boats called danjiri are floated on the Tennō River, and reeds are released into the water. The shrine is built in the owari-zukuri style, of which few extant examples remain. Plan to see Tsushima Shrine and other attractions that appeal to you using our Tsushima trip planner.
Tsushima Shrine Reviews
初詣で伺いました。 最寄り駅からは徒歩で20分弱程かかります。 参道には大きな銀杏の御神木が有って参拝客を迎えてくれます。 三が日を過ぎても屋台が多く出て、賑わっていました。摂社では茅の輪くぐり、良い一年のスタートがきれそうです。 more »I visited here at the first visit. It takes less than 20 minutes on foot from the nearest station. There is a big ginkgo sacred tree on the approach to the shrine, which welcomes worshippers. Even after the day, there were many stalls and it was crowded. It seems to be able to pass through the circle of the rose at Setsha, and to start a good year.
