Tsushima Shrine, Tsushima
(3.6/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
Tsushima Shrine is a Shinto shrine in Tsushima, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. Nationally famous, it heads the Tsushima shrine network, dedicated to the so-called Tsushima Cult. This Tōkai-centered network with its about 3000 member shrines is the tenth largest in the country. The main kami of this faith are, the god of pestilences, and Susanoo, two deities which have been conflated together. For this reason, like other shrines of the network it is also called Tsushima Gozutennō-sha. Shrine legend says that Gozutennō's aramitama (its violent side) stays at Izumo-taisha, whereas its nigemitama (calm aspect) came to Japan from the Korean peninsula after stopping in Tsushima Island, between Korea and Japan. This may explain the relationship between the two Tsushimas suggested by the common name. The shrine holds a festival called Tsushima Matsuri in the sixth month of the lunar calendar (July in the gregorian calendar) during which boats called danjiri are floated on the Tennō River, and reeds are released into the water. The shrine is built in the owari-zukuri style, of which few extant examples remain.

  • Is a Shinto shrine of Toyotomi Hideyoshi's name comes. I stopped by after buying a goldfish Yatomi. Parking is free of charge. Said the gate was donated by Hideyoshi. Ieyasu and the main shrine in history is like dying. Even from a distance you see at a major shrine.

  • On Sunday evening, from 155, entered from the South Gate of the Shrine just outside. Free rest stations was closed, but in the Torii, on your doorstep. Worshippers are hobbling. Ago the South Gate of the vermilion Park in the parking lot of depth with Lantern. It was donated to read a description and Hideyori Toyotomi Hideyoshi's disease healing prayer for. Making the front was the main shrine is directly invisible is. Awesome roof roofing and look around to the back behind the main hall is so thick and size and shape. It was a splendid shrine. In said Hideyoshi donor is the gate, and stands away from the South Gate. The arched bridge, perfect for photography and I think.
