Was founded
It is said that Emperor Jinmu 6 years ago had departed from Miyazaki's palace and stopped at this place during the eastern transition to pray for the peace of the land, the peace of the sea, and the luck of armed forces for a long and long time.

According to the old report,
It was the largest shrine in Hyuga Kuni, but during the conflict between Shimadzu and Otomo during the Tensho era, all the shrines, treasures, ancient documents, etc. were destroyed by the fire of Mr. Otomo, but the shrine was evacuated to the foot of Mount Osuzu. Escaped the difficulty.
After the conflict, there was only a small shrine without the reconstruction of the shrine for many years.

In the 5th year of the Genroku era, "Akizuki Tansei", the lord of Akizuki, revived the building,
In 6th year of Ansei, there was a donation to the shrine of Atsushiya.

【由 緒 (history)】

The Tsuno shrine has been called "Hinata Kuninomiya" since ancient times. The deity god is an ancient shrine dedicated to "onamuchi no mikoto," which has a high deity.

According to the legend of our company, Emperor Jimmu departed from "Miyazaki no Miya" during the eastern transition. On the way, the Emperor prayed to the ancestors of the land peace, maritime peace, and the luck of armed forces in this land for a long time. This is the creation of this shrine.

The shrine has since been revered by successive royal families. It became state-owned during the time of the 54th Emperor Nimei. In the age of the 56th Emperor Seiwa, the status rose. In the era of the 60th Emperor Daigo, it was recorded in the "engishiki jimmeicho". It is Ichinomiya of Hyuga country.

According to the old account of this shrine, in the old days, the shrine was magnificent, the shrine grounds were wide open, the third torii was between 15 and 6 and the second torii was between 6 and 7 It was built over. The old trace is still recognized. During the Tensho era, the Otomo and Shimazu military commanders were in conflict, suffering from company fires, and the treasured treasures of ancient life and ancient documents disappeared. Since then, the precincts of the shrine have been steadily shrinking.

Upon the practice of the Emperor Meiji, he worships the Shinto ritual according to the restoration of the royal rule and the Baidu Restoration, and cites the auspices of respecting rituals.

This shrine was lined up as a state-run shrine ahead of other shrines in the prefecture on May 15, 1884.
In 1934, at the ceremony of the 2600th anniversary of Emperor Jimmu's relocation to the East, as a commemorative project, we organized a support group and expanded the precincts. Generally speaking, the state of the present state is reached, and the god of God believes in complete remission.

God's "onamuchi no mikoto" is especially honored for national land development, aquaculture and farming, not to mention the spirituality as a sacred god, as well as a god of fishery navigation, a god of traffic safety, and medical care. It is a shrine that gathers the faith of ancient people as a guardian deity of the God of God, the God of marriage, prosperity of the descendants, and Fukunenman.

【オタッキーポイント】(Points selected by Japanese Otaku)
あなたが この神社に興味が湧くような予備知識をオタク視点でご紹介します

"Aburaishi" that talks about the depth of religious belief

There is a tradition of stones at the shrine. The "Abura stone" (historic site of a folk cultural property) on the left side of Ogami Bridge on the way of the approach tells the depth of people's faith.

Oil stone

This rock was installed on the opposite bank of the Tono River so that the townspeople could worship it when the Tono River was flooded.
It was used as a place of worship for shrines by pouring oil on "Aburaishi" and lighting it up, but since the bridge was completed, it has been dedicated to the shrine and is still in use today.

This rock has been worshiped as a sacred stone for achieving goals and fulfilling the wishes of people by guiding and aiming for many years.
It is said that if you touch this rock with a wish, it will make your wish come true.

Visit the Shrine (Pray at the Shrine)

I introduce the state when I visited this shrine.

About 2km from Tsuno Station via Prefectural Road 310 About 4 minutes by car
When heading south toward R10 from the direction of Hyuga City, it is divided into R10 and the old road near the center of Tsunomachi This shrine is located between R10 and the old road
Otorii stands along R10

Arrived at Tsuno shrine

From the parking lot, you will come out on the way to the wide approach.

Stones related to Shinto rituals are placed on the left and right sides of Kami Bridge.
To the left of Kamibashi is the "Abura stone" (historic site of folk cultural assets) that I mentioned earlier.
It is said that there is a benefit in touching the stone with all your thoughts. It is recommended for those who wish.

In front of the right hand side of Shinbashi, there is a stone of "Ishimochi Shinto ritual".
One of the Shinto rituals that I want to do by all
means in the worship of "Tono Shrine" is "Ishimochi Shinto ritual".
I'll choose one of the black stones that are here with a gift, and i'll hold it and sit down to the main shrine, and then
pay the stone to the "God's Stone Place" on the back side of
the main shrine.

After a short bow, cross the Shinkyo Bridge, and on the right hand side of the approach is the "Ema" and on the left is the "Shrine Office". I got the red stamp here

There is a "temizusha" on the left hand in front of the Shinto
gate, and the stone of the god of "Ishimochi Shinto ritual" is held, and it is cleansed with the hand water.
It is said that it is a self-exorcism place (Jibaraisho), and it shakes greatly in the order of the left right left while chanting "It is paid to the exorcism, it is cleansed, and it protects it to the salary, and it is paid to the salary" in the order of the left right left.

With this ritual, I have purified my whole body, so I'm ready for a pilgrimage.
Pass through the Shinmon Gate (Namdaimon) with a refreshing feeling

On the right hand side of the Shinmon Gate, you can benefit by stroking "Stroking great power" "Stroking rabbit"
"Stroking a Rabbit" will give you the benefit of illness

"Stroking Great Powers" is a benefit to Daikoku because he is a god who gave birth to the country and healed sickness.

At the back of the right hand
side is kagura-den and mikoshi-koshi-ko.
It was an old shrine, and it looks like a shrine hall.

It is a place to put the stone that I mentioned in the previous "Ishimochi Shinto" that if you worship with a black stone, your wish will come true.
