Kotari Shrine Reviews
勝竜寺城からJR長岡京駅へ向かう途中に参拝しました。旧神足村の産土神です。式内社で「延喜式」にのる乙訓十九座の１つとのことで、歴史ある神社です。御祭神は、舎人親王（天武天皇の皇子）であるといわれている。この神社には、桓武天皇の夢としての伝説が残っています。田村（神足村の旧名）の池に天から神が降り立ち、宮中を南から襲おうとした悪霊を防いでおられた夢を見た。天皇は、目覚められ、田村にこの神を祀る社を立... more »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.
ＪＲ長岡京駅から徒歩５～６分の所に有る古社です。ご祭神は舎人親王、平城京時代に天武天皇の皇子として政治力を振るった方です。なぜ祭神になったかは説明書には書いていませんので不明ですが、ここで親王の名を見るとは思いませんでした。ちなみに子孫は公家として残り「枕草子」で有名な清少納言も一人です。 more »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.
