  • We visited the shrine on the way from Katsuryuji Castle to JR Nagaokakyo Station. It is a birth god of the old Shinshi village. It is one of the ten nine seats of Otokun on the "Engi-shiki" at Shikiuchisha, and it is a historical shrine. It is said that the god of the festival is the prince of Emperor Tenmu. In this shrine, a legend remains as a dream of Emperor Tsujimu. I had a dream that God had descended from heaven on the pond of Tamura (the old name of Kamisavillage) and prevented the evil spirits who tried to attack the imperial palace from the south. The Emperor was awakened and set up a shrine in Tamura that enshrines this god.

  • It is a 5-6-minute walk from JR Nagaokakyo Station. The festival god is the one who wielded political power as the prince of Emperor Tenmu in the Sajin prince and The Heijo Kyo period. I don't know why i became a god of god, so i don't know why, but I didn't think i'd see the name of the king here. By the way, the descendant remains as a public family, and the kiyosa no word famous for "Pillow Grasschild" is one person, too.

  • It's probably an obfusmis. "Kotori". JR Nagaokakyo Station used to be a railway station. In the story I read when I was a child, Emperor Tsujimu dreamed of God. But for some reason, I can only see my feet. I think that it became a place name called God's foot there. However, there are various theories about the creation and the deity, and it is elusive. Nagaokakyo City has been established, and the remains of the empty moat of Katsuryuji Castle are historic sites, and lawns are landed. The north side of the company became a ground, too. It used to be a company covered with dense bamboo shoots. I was happy that the double cherry blossoms next to torii were in full bloom.

  • It is a very splendid shrine. But I don't like Shiba Inu-san.
