(3.6/5 based on 30 reviews on the web)
三光神社(さんこうじんじゃ)は、大阪府大阪市天王寺区玉造本町の宰相山公園にある神社である。天照大神・月読尊・素戔嗚尊を祀る。歴史反正天皇の時代の創建と伝えられる。創建以来、武内宿禰の末裔の武川氏が神職として奉職し、現在は86代目と伝える。社伝によれば、寛文元年(1661年)に一旦現在地の南東の鎌八幡の隣に遷座し、宝永3年(1706年)に再び現在地に戻ったという。かつては「姫山神社」と称し、一帯は「姫の松原」と呼ばれていた。中風封じの神として有名な陸前国宮城郡青麻(現 宮城県仙台市宮城野区)の三光宮(現 青麻神社)を勧請し、そちらの方が有名になった。明治15年(1882年)の『大阪名所独案内』に三光宮を勧請した旨が書かれており、勧請はそれ以前ということになる。明治41年(1908年)、姫山神社に境内社・三光宮を合祀し、社名を「三光神社」とした。3柱の神を祀ることから「三柱神社」とも、「日月山神社」ともいう。鎮座地の丘は宰相山とも真田山ともいう。かつては大坂城の出城「真田丸」が置かれ、大坂の陣のときには真田信繁が大坂城から当地までの抜け穴を掘ったといわれ、社殿の下に残っている。境内には黒田屏風に描かれた真田信繁を元にした像がある。千田嘉博によると、現在残っている抜け穴は真田信繁がつくったものではなく、真田丸を攻めた前田軍の塹壕の痕跡の可能性が高いとしている。境内社末社 仁徳天皇社(仁徳天皇)末社 武内宿禰社(武内宿禰) -- 社家・武川氏の祖神。長寿であることから七福神のうちの寿老人と同一視され、大阪七福神(浪速七福神)の一つとなっている。末社 野見宿禰社(野見宿禰) -- 安政6年(1859年)7月に天満砂原屋敷の相撲場に勧請されたもので、明治19年(1886年)に当社境内に遷座した。末社 主守稲荷社

  • Edge of Shrine and pilgrimage was hanging out. I hesitated a bit because some places have. I thought people in relation to historical drama, but rain since most people don't.

  • Tamatsukuri station out now at Sanko shrine there. You can go in a heartbeat because it looks at exit 2, look left and Torii.

  • If you go with Sanada Masayuki village is quite photogenic. Because both the image and the loophole. But overwhelmed is a military cemetery located on the shrine. That the peace will not help. From the Shinto shrine front left up and away. Incidentally real Sanada-Maru is the West Asian junior high school seems to be in the Hall and grounds.

  • The shrine looks old and holy.love to visit it.
  • 静かな佇まいの良い感じの神社です。
  • Sanko shrine isn't Sanada-Maru track. It is a site of Kaga Maeda forces. Is said loophole and tombs dug Maeda won. I'm making stone wall at the entrance to plausible, but previously did not. It is nice to feel the romance of history, historical evidence does not recognize as a historical fact, the truth will look like.
