And the Death Is Still Going on


・「経島(fumi shima)」下の本社 = 日沈の宮(hishizumi no miya)の元宮

The Mikogami of 素盞嗚尊(susanowo no mikoto) is "天葺根命(ameno fukine no mikoto)". = When the ancestors of the Ono family went to "Fumishima"

"This is the god of the day, and here, bless the people of the whole world, enshrine the thy speed" and receive the oracle of Amaterasu Omi kami.
It was the beginning that the soul was enshrined in "fumi shima" and later "momoe no matsu of the sutra island was dedicated as a god tree"

The temple was founded in "fumi shima" by the order of the 9th Emperor Kaika Tenno.
This is the "momoesuki shrine" in Izumo no kuni fudoki.

In 948 (Tenryaku 2nd year), it is enshrined in the current "hinomisaki shrine" by the order of the "62nd Emperor Murakami (murakami tenno)".

下の本社 = 日沈の宮(hishizumi no miya)の由緒


Since the Gods
It was located on the island of Keijima (also known as Bunjima or Hikijima) on the coast (the beach of Kiyoe) near the current company site, but it was relegated to the present company site by the order of Emperor Murakami in the second year of the Calendar (about 1,000 years ago).

To ask Keijima the origin of go-senza,

神代の昔 素盞嗚尊の御子神 天葺根命(又天冬衣命と申す)清江の浜に出ましし時、
島上の百枝の松に 瑞光輝き

命 即ち悦び畏みて 直ちに島上に大御神を斎き祀り給うたと云う。

又 『日の出る所 伊勢国 五十鈴川の川上に 伊勢大神宮を鎮め祀り 日の本の昼を守り、出雲国 日御碕 清江の浜に 日しずみの宮を建て 日御碕大神宮と称して 日の本の夜を護らん』と

かように 日御碕は 古来夕日を銭け鎮める霊域として 中央より幸運恵の神として 深く崇敬せられたのである。

そして、安寧天皇13年勅命による祭祀あり、又第九代開化天皇2年勅命により島上に神殿が造営された(出雲国風土記に見える 百枝しぎ社 なり)
村上天皇 天暦2年前記の如く 現社地に御遷座せられ、後「神の宮」と共に日御碕大神宮と称せられる。

【オタッキーポイント】(Points selected by Japanese Otaku)

「経島(fumi shima)」は神の島 入らずの島

"Fumishima" is a shrine area of Hinomisaki shrine, and general access other than priesthood is prohibited.

Only priests can go to "fumi shima" by boat at the time of the festival on August 7th once a year.
The festival of the sunset "Kamiyuki Shinto" is performed every moment while the sunset sets in the Sea of Japan, and the appearance that it is performed drifts with the gods.



【神社にお詣り】(Pray at the shrine)

It is located on the sea about 100m west of Hinomisaki shrine.

It is an uninhabited island with an area of about 3000 square meters.

"Fumi shima" is famous as a breeding ground for sea cats.
As designated as a national natural monument, more than 5,000 sea cats fly in from late November to winter every year, spawning and hatching from April to May, growing chicks, and flying off the island around July.

Depending on the season, it's full of sea cats.
Because it was early August at the time of taking this photograph, it is a prayer from the fishing port "misaki nohama" across the street.
