(4.3/5 based on 25 reviews on the web)
丹生都比売神社(にふつひめじんじゃ/にうつひめじんじゃ、丹生都比賣神社)は、和歌山県伊都郡かつらぎ町上天野にある神社。式内社(名神大社)、紀伊国一宮。旧社格は官幣大社で、現在は神社本庁の別表神社。別称として「天野大社」「天野四所明神」とも。全国に約180社ある丹生都比売神を祀る神社の総本社である。「紀伊山地の霊場と参詣道」の構成資産の一つとして世界文化遺産に登録されている。概要和歌山県北東部、高野山北西の天野盆地に鎮座する。空海が金剛峯寺を建立するにあたって丹生都比売神社が神領を寄進したと伝えられ、古くより高野山と深い関係にある神社である。神社背後の尾根上には高野山への表参道である高野山町石道(国の史跡、世界遺産)が通り、丹生都比売神社は高野山への入り口にあたることから、高野山参拝前にはまず丹生都比売神社に参拝する習わしであったという。丹生都比売神社自体も高野山からの影響を強く受け、境内には多くの仏教系の遺跡・遺物が残る。和歌山県・奈良県を主とした各地では、高野山の荘園に丹生都比売神社が勧請された関係で、丹生都比売神社の分霊を祀る神社の分布が知られる。神社では国宝の銀銅蛭巻太刀拵を始めとする文化財のほか、本殿および楼門などの社殿が国の重要文化財に指定されている。また境内は国の史跡に指定されている。これらのうち本殿、楼門および境内は、ユネスコの世界遺産「紀伊山地の霊場と参詣道」の一部として登録されている。祭神祭神は次の4柱。これら4神は「四所明神」とも総称される。 第一殿:丹生都比売大神 (にうつひめのおおかみ): 通称「丹生明神」。古くより祀られていた神。 第二殿:高野御子大神 (たかのみこのおおかみ): 通称「狩場明神」。高野山開創と関係する神。 第三殿:大食津比売大神 (おおげつひめのおおかみ): 通称「気比明神」。承元2年(1208年)に氣比神宮(福井県敦賀市)からの勧請と伝える。 第四殿:市杵島比売大神 (いちきしまひめのおおかみ): 通称「厳島明神」。第三殿と同年に厳島神社(広島県廿日市市)からの勧請と伝える。

Amaterasu's main supporters (Oh her sweet light bite) of sister God and Niu capital ratio sold Okami (in Princess depression Wolf), headquarters of approximately 180 shrine enshrines Okami's. That women of God are to and enshrined. Loan in 0/816 where jinryo Kobo Daishi / Kukai from this shrine was founded the head temple of the Shingon esoteric Buddhism and has been. Not to say that is the shrine the shrine and in the beginning of the fusion of Shinto and Buddhism. Main building was built during the Muromachi period, the gate is designated as the 0/2004 is registered in the world heritage site. Red head is fine indeed. I learned later that this arched bridge would be a bridge is, to refrain from what he said. Office has a lovely black and white two fortune but its cute little cat was a dog called was going just fine, but in fact led to Koyasan Kukai. What the dog did grant daikichi to me.

  • Has said that shows the power of Niu's shrine with the letters of "Niu" means mercury is numerous in the ITO-gun, but was involved in the mining of mercury, Niu shrine's national headquarters here. Lord's NYU capital ratio sold Okami is reportedly the sister God of Amaterasu. Shrine of the goddess will be integrated in nature, really nice and company. Remains the tradition 1,200 years ago, met in the mountains of hunting wild Myojin Kukai, borrowed the Koyasan Okami Niu capital ratio sales than in its guidance. Then, Kukai prior to Koyasan incision, which sold by Niu capital ratio to the Cathedral on the platform we built. Shinbutsu shugo in such circumstances this is weak here was at least known. Good approaches from the parking lot. Stone steps aside to decorate the small flowers across the Creek and through the rustic stone monolith. And one gate, the road ahead is beautiful shinkyo bridge. Sumiyoshi Taisha rankings and is reportedly what you think looks the same yodogimi donated. At the top of the bridge at every Interior with the second large Torii gate. Ryobu Torii is a form of Shinto. Just walk the Causeway, to the dynamic landscape changes. As much as the mountains into the eyes, you can feel the mountain shrine. The designated gate between the kogosho concrete House with style in the Muromachi period. You can't see turn beside the gate, stands behind the main building. One company spring, main shrine's and the nation's largest in this style. It was repaired two years ago, the beautiful colors. The special visit of carried out advertising campaign, but day-twice in limited, often to check for HP. Also on the periphery of Omine Shugendo monument, Komyo-Shingon Buddhism mandala monument, set aside-Inn stone shrines are collected. Overlooked, but trees are beautiful and should stop.
