(4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
湊川神社(みなとがわじんじゃ)は、兵庫県神戸市中央区多聞通三丁目にある楠木正成を祭る神社。地元では親しみを込めて「楠公(なんこう)さん」と呼ばれている。建武中興十五社の一社で、旧社格は別格官幣社である。概要楠木正成は、延元元年(1336年)5月25日、湊川の地で足利尊氏と戦い殉節した(湊川の戦い)。その墓は長らく荒廃していたが、元禄5年(1692年)になり徳川光圀が「嗚呼忠臣楠子之墓」の石碑を建立した。以来、水戸学者らによって楠木正成は理想の勤皇家として崇敬された。幕末には維新志士らによって祭祀されるようになり、彼らの熱烈な崇敬心は国家による楠社創建を求めるに至った。1867年(慶応3年)に尾張藩主徳川慶勝により楠社創立の建白がなされ、明治元年(1868年)、それを受けて明治天皇は大楠公の忠義を後世に伝えるため、神社を創建するよう命じ、明治2年(1869年)、墓所・殉節地を含む7,232坪(現在約7,680坪)を境内地と定め、明治5年(1872年)5月24日、湊川神社が創建された。境内には、楠公にゆかりのあるものを納めた宝物殿や能楽堂である神能殿や結婚式などのための楠公会館などがある。また兵庫県内の神社の事務を管轄する兵庫県神社庁の事務所がある。

  • It is very handy in events related to the celebrations, 753 children, and grows a large camphor tree in the shrine. This is JR or subway and a shopping area.
