Awa Shrine, Tateyama
(4.3/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
安房神社(あわじんじゃ)は、千葉県館山市大神宮にある神社。式内社(名神大社)、安房国一宮。旧社格は官幣大社で、現在は神社本庁の別表神社。概要千葉県南部、房総半島最南端部の吾谷山(あづちやま)山麓に鎮座する神社である。伝承では、神話時代に阿波地方(現在の徳島県)から渡ってきた忌部氏(いんべうじ、斎部氏)による創建といい、「安房」の国名・社名はこの阿波忌部の移住・開拓から起こったといわれる。古代の安房国はアワビの貢進地として朝廷から重要視され、安房国の中心的神社である安房神社もまた古くより重要視された。特に、全国でも数少ない神郡が設置された点や、出雲国造(出雲大社奉斎氏族)・紀伊国造(和歌山の日前國懸神宮奉斎氏族)に並び安房国造が律令制下でも祭祀を担った点、および宮中の大膳職にも「御食津神」として祀られていた点が特筆される。中世以降は安房国の一宮に位置づけられ、明治維新後も近代社格制度で最高位の官幣大社に位置づけられたように、歴史を通じて崇敬を集めた古社になる。

  • It is pure shrine through the white gate, walk along the entrance path. Pond, trees are very clean gently place settles down the mind. I think Veterans Memorial and 慮ru history when in the back is also good. And also Tateyama wild bird sanctuary there, look at the feet of the best!

  • Feeling very afraid and not too many people go to shrines in the region there are many, this is not so scary, small, clean and a drifts even sacred shrine was. Monument dedicated to the veterans who had bases and Tateyama, Japan-Russia war monument, the mind more hikishimarimasu. On the Palace in front of the mirror, was surprised you projected. The wording of the prayer and stand on the left side of the box, we have the words plus your wish. Is there just a little bit different, and are moving to the lower temple to sheer rock. Further down are also sacred cedar. Attention is required at the entrance or rather under the shrine is now quite small and the lack of height, tall. Sweet in the morning I visited, but neighbors who daily he has, such as visit would have been. I think since this morning and were visiting the shrine and go alone without fear. Next to wild forest? Like the sunny said was easier to stay with their feet walking shoes are apparently good vantage point it is recommended.

  • Mind is a peaceful spot. To be lazy, and through the first gate to the parking lot at the back have. Deposit Office in the temple at the shrine (firstfruits cost 300 yen). Admiral Togo and also please have a rim. Beautiful well maintained and even by birds chirping voice all the time. It was a shrine floating sense of relief.
