Iwashimizu Hachimangu Reviews
日本三大八幡宮の一つ、朝8時のケーブルカーに乗り、写真を撮影しながらゆっくり回って、本殿をお参り終えたら8時半、境内に君が代が流れます。国宝の神社の中で聞く君が代は新鮮な感覚です。 ジョギングやウオーキングの方、正参道をゆっくりと登る高齢のご婦人、皆さん様々な目的でお参りに来ているようです。 ぐるりと回って正参道を下り、高良神社が見えたところで石清水社に行ってないことに気づきました。一大決心して裏... more »Take a cable car at 8 o'clock in the morning, one of Japan's three major Hachimangu shrines, take a picture, slowly turn around, and when you finish visiting the main shrine, you will be able to pay your generation to the precincts at 8:30. It is a fresh feeling that you hear in the shrine of the national treasure. Jogging and walking, elderly women who climb the main approach slowly, everyone seems to come to worship for various purposes. I went around and went down the Masasan Road and noticed that I didn't go to Ishimizusha when I saw Takara Shrine. I made up my mind and went up the back approach. The stone steps are well maintained, but it was tough. I sweated even though it was October. It took 2 hours and 15 minutes due to an accident that i made a mistake.
石清水八幡宮は日本三大八幡宮の一つだそうです。道中、虫が大量に発生していて、参拝客より多いんではないかと思いました。。。 駅から歩いて行くことも可能なようですが、健脚の方以外は男山ケーブルを使って本殿に行くのがいいかと思います。 more »It is said that Ishimizu Hachimangu Shrine is one of the three major Hachimangu shrines in Japan. On the way, there were a lot of insects, and I thought that there were more than worshippers. It seems to be possible to walk from the station, but I think that it is good to go to the main hall using the Oyama cable except for the person of the healthy leg.
Iwashimizu hachimangu was established in 859 in Yawata City in the south part of Kyoto Prefecture in a sacred ground where three large river of Kizu, Uji, Yodo meets. Resting on the top of Mt. Otokoyama known as a battle field of ancient times, the shrine serves itself as a guardian to protect the area. Original purpose of its establishment was to offer protection to the Emperor of Japan and late it turned into a grand shrine. The current form of the shrine was constructed in the time of Tokugawa Shogunate in 17th century. Its sophisticated decoration maked spectacular appearance built in a style of Hachiman zukuri. The shrine is very active with sacred rituals being held at a constant routine. There is a historical connection with Thomas Edison with this shrine since he collected fiber of bamboo grown in its precincts to make the very first light bulb for the shrine in 1880. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes of small hiking to reach the top of the mountain. There also is an observation point where you can command a panoramic view of the city. You can take a cable car to the top of the mountain from the nearby station. ( Trans-word+ : TGM Kyoto Guide )
