Kumano Hongu Taisha Shrine (Wakayama,Japan)

  • 2 年前
Regardless of social rank or wealth, the faithful flock to the Kumano Sanzan on pilgrimage like a train of ants. There were hundred-odd visits from emperors and other nobles visited from the Emperor Uda period.

Kumano Hongu Taisha was named an Important Cultural Property of Japan in 1995.

As you climb the 158 stone steps to the main building, you sense the endless history in the fluttering streamers and towering cedar trees. Once through the main gate, you come upon the main hall with its magnificent thatched roof of cypress shingles. The present structure was relocated here from Ohyunohara after the original structure was destroyed by floods in 1889.

Kumano Hongu Taisha enshrines Izanagi-Okami, the deity who gave birth to Japan, and Ketsumimiko-Okami, a benevolent deity who strives to help mankind. Many people come here to pray for safety on the road, abundant catches (of fish), harmony in the home, happy marriage and long life.
