These heihaku were initially presented to 16 shrines including the Ōharano Shrine.The shrine's importance and influence grew in succeeding centuries; and its extensive landholdings led to modest conflicts with Minamoto no Yoritomo during the years in which the Kamakura shogunate was establishing itself.

京阪電車の八幡市駅から男山ケーブルに乗り換えて山頂駅へ、ここから数分山道を登った所にある八幡宮です。ここは、鎌倉の鶴岡八幡宮と九州の宇佐神宮とあわせて日本三大八幡宮と言われているだけあって立派な社殿が目を引きます。また、ちょっと下った展望所からは、遠く京都市内を一望することができますよ。It is a Hachiman shrine, climbed the mountain road just a few minutes from here to the Summit, the otokoyama cable from Yawata-Shi station of Keihan electric railway.

いつもは車で行くのですが、今回は一の鳥居から参道を通っていきました。階段、坂が続き結構大変でした。階段を上りきると三の鳥居が現れ、まっすぐな山道が続きます。その先に立派な南総門があり、そして立派な御本殿があります。京都の裏鬼門として歴代の天皇との関係も深く、八幡さんなので源氏をはじめ武家との関係も感じされる由緒ある神社です。京都からは少し離れていますが、立ち寄って、参拝するだけの価値はあると思いま... read more »Always go in the car, but approach this time through was Torii. Stairs and slopes are quite more difficult. Appeared three Torii and can climb up the stairs, followed by a trail straight. Which has a respectable southern main gate and main hall worthy.

Kyoto Dream Trips
Last Saturday (January 24), it was such a fine day here in Kyoto, that I couldn’t resist biking to the Yawata area of Kyoto and pay a visit to the Iwashimizu Hachiman-gū shrine (石清水八幡宮) on Mt. Otokoyama (男山). Although it was near the end of January many people were still coming to the shrine to celebrate Hatsumōde (初詣). As I entered the shrine grounds, sacred kagura music was being played, while a shrine maiden or Miko performed a purification ceremony. She was purifying Hamaya arrows. They are “demon-breaking arrows” and many people bought them to ward off misfortune and attract good luck. In the other hand she was holding a Kagura suzu or “divine entertainment bells”, while the flute and drum accompanied her. Iwashimizu Hachiman-gū is like a fortress on a hill with a scenic view of the Yawata area. The shrine was founded in 859 by the monk Gyōkyō (行教) and is dedicated to “Hachiman” the god of war. The present Honden (本殿) was built by the third shogun, Tokugawa Iemitsu, in 1634. Many Emperors and Shogun’s visited here to pray for success in the many battles they fought. Until this day the Iwashimizu Hachiman-gū is one of the three most important Hachiman shrines in Japan. It was also the head shrine of the Minamoto clan. Minamoto no Yorinobu, in 1046 as governor of Kawachi, began worship at the Iwashimizu Hachiman-gū Shrine. Iwashimizu Hachiman-gū has an interesting connection to the life and work of Thomas Edison, who used bamboo collected from the groves at the shrine by his assistant William H. Moore to make filaments for his first electric light bulb in 1880. After visiting the shrine don’t forget to visit the observatory to get a splendid view of the Yawata area.
