The shrine is noted for its annual festival on the second Saturday in June, which is famous for the Chagu Chagu Umakko, a horse parade which was recognized in 1978 as an Intangible Folk Cultural Property. In 1996 the sound of the bells of the Chagu Chagu Umakko was selected by the Ministry of the Environment as one of the 100 Soundscapes of Japan. The shrine is also noted for its displays of yabusame horse archery during its annual festival on September 15.HistoryThe Morioka Hachimangū was established in 1062 during the late Heian period when Minamoto no Yoriyoshi brought a bunrei of the Minamoto clan’s tutelary shrine, the Iwashimizu Hachimangū in Kyoto to pray for victory in his campaign against the Abe clan in the Former Nine Years War. It was originally called the Hatomori Hachimangū. The shrine was rebuilt in 1593 by the Nanbu clan to be the protective shrine for Morioka Castle. Under the State Shinto system of shrine ranking from 1871 through 1946, the Morioka Hachimangū was officially designated as a "prefectural shrine". The Edo-period shrine structures burned down in 1884. The present main structure dates from 2006.Add Morioka Hachimangu to your Morioka travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Morioka travel itinerary maker.

八幡様は各地にありますが、その中でも比較的大きい方だと思います。護国神社も併設しています。 護国神社の御朱印も八幡様の社務所でもらうようになります。I think Hachiman is located in various places, but the relatively largest. It features a shrine. Nokyo gokoku shrine-sho also will get in the Office of the Hachiman.show original
