Omiwa Shrine, Sakurai
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Explore one of the oldest Shinto shrines in the land, Omiwa Shrine--notable for its lack of sacred images or objects, it honors the mountain on which it stands. Wander the peaceful grounds, nestled in the trees, with an ancient Japanese cedar here considered as sacred. The main hall of worship stands purposefully empty, reflecting the sensibility of the Kofun period (250 to 538 CE): since the mountain itself is venerated, the trees are protected and grow densely upon it. Pilgrims can climb the mountain, but need to apply at the adjacent Sai Jinja and must wearing a white sash while doing so, after going through a Shinto ritual.

自然の中での感じが少ないですが、きれいに植えられた桜で、きれいに見る事が出来ます。適度に混んでいて、桜見物の雰囲気が楽しめます。Cherry is less felt in nature, were planted in clean, clean look. Moderately crowded, the atmosphere of the cherry.show original
大神神社というのですね。 御神体が山。山の上から大きな鳥井がみえます。ここのお土産の日本酒の入浴剤は本当にお肌ツルツルになり、匂いもすごくいい。 買い占めておけばよかったなぁと思うくらい。 社の中も閲覧させていただけます。桜の時期はすごく綺麗だろうなぁ〜〜It is a shrine. The object of worship mountain. Great Torii is seen from the top of the mountain. Souvenirs here sake bath salts to your skin smooth and smells really nice. A good buying them up as I think. While the company let me browse. Cherry is very beautiful wonder! ~ ~show original
ここは私にとってとても意味が深い場所で、一言では語れない。まさに感無量であった。久延毘古神社は、比類無き暖かさで迎え入れて感激していただき、涙が溢れた。この場所全てが初めて行ったのに懐かしく、慈愛に溢れていた。いつまでも いつまでもこの場所にとどまっていたかった。Talk here is for me very deep meaning in Word. Exactly what was with deep emotion. 久延--old shrine is welcomed in the exceptional warmth for inspiring the tears. Miss all this place for the first time I went, and was filled with compassion. Even when staying in this place forever, I wanted to.show original
