Ōyamazumi Shrine, Imabari

4.4
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Imabari
Ōyamazumi Shrine is located on the island of Ōmishima in the Seto Inland Sea. The shrine is dedicated to the gods who protect sailors and soldiers. Because of this, many daimyo and other military leaders have made offerings at the shrine in hopes of military success, or in thanks for victory in battle. The offerings of swords, armor, and other military equipment are now housed in the largest museum of fighting equipment used during the age of the samurai in Japan. There are items housed in the shrine which belonged to Tomoe Gozen, Minamoto no Yoritomo, founder of the Kamakura Bakufu and first shogun, and to his younger brother, Minamoto no Yoshitsune.

  • Your environment has many big Kusunoki, is a spectacular 10-minute. Free parking is available near the entrance is not much volume. If there are no spaces seems good stop near Station Road, etc. Next time I come to the inner shrine had younger you want to is.

  • Shrine centers around some 1000 yr old trees. Shrine buildings themselves are more or less unimpressive - except for the god sculptures.
  • Nice shrine but nothing too spectacular except having one of the oldest trees in Japan.
  • nice place
  • I went to the noon of GW. Of the 2,600-year-old sacred tree is very respectable. Car rather worship is a car park in front of supermarkets and the way, is better used the omishima branch of Imabari City Hall located about 1 km away. Afternoon was congested roads to the shrine in the parking lot waiting. Eat shop that catch before the shrine Bowl is accepted, I quit. Nice meal good near the City Hall in a shop called the river ate * ♫.

  • 2,600 year old in the precinct's giant camphor is overwhelming. In the middle is sacred and the shrine is rare. Without a doubt is a power spot.
