【由 緒 (history)】

chokaizan omonoimi shrine(warabioka kuchi no miya) On the precinct
March 28, 2008
The designated Mt. Chokai was repeatedly shrine- served since ancient times due to its unstable appearance and repeated volcanic activity, which has been repeated since ancient times. It is a mountain of religion that has been revered as the god of things.

In the Middle Ages, it was established as a sacred place for Shugendo.
In the modern age, Shugen people established their own activity bases around Mt. Chokai, and they decided to worship the sacred mountain.
Among them, the warabioka people, with Ryuzu-ji as the head of their school, were called Mt. Chokaiyama, Bunko and Sanjubo Waraboka, and boasted the most powerful force in the worship.

The main precincts are located almost in the center of the Kamiwarabioka area (commonly known as "Kamidera"), which retains the image of the shukubo village, such as "Oizumibo Nagayamon" (a nationally registered tangible cultural property).
When you dive through the flat and flat Zuishinmon (formerly the Niomon) of "Dewa Kazunomiya" donated by Tadashi Sakai, the lord of Shonai, you can see the vermilion Kagura hall on your right. At the Kaguraden, at the annual festival on May 3rd (``Daimonbei Matsuri''), the warrior enrollment (Yamagata prefecture designated intangible) is a performing art that is integrated with the training and passage rituals of Yamabushi. Folk cultural property) is dedicated.

Furthermore, as you proceed along the approach, you will find the main shrine facing south facing the Santorii gate, with a large front yard. This is a magnificent shrine that reminds us of what once was the rise of Warabioka.

In addition, in the precincts,
in the precincts of Sakata,
Mitsuoka's donation to the Houki Into (a tangible cultural property designated by Yusa Town) and the Yasushi Suruga Mamoru Sadakken are involved in the turmoil during the Tenpo years.
In addition to the Sueshaso Terui Nari Shrine (Yusa Town's designated tangible cultural property) that enshrines, there is a stone monument with about 400 steps on the hillside of Mt. There is a "den" and a beech natural forest (a natural monument designated by Yusa Town) miraculously left in a lowland about 150 m above sea level.

This historic site represents the faith and cultural heritage of Mt. Chokai.

【オタッキーポイント】(Points selected by Japanese Otaku)
I will introduce the preliminary knowledge that will make you interested in this shrine from an otaku perspective.

About "「鳥海山(chokai san)」" where the main shrine of 大物忌神社(omonoimi shrine) sits

The main shrine of 大物忌神社(omonoimi shrine) is located at the top of an active volcano with an altitude of 2,236 m 「鳥海山(chokai san)」, which extends between Yamagata and Akita prefectures.

In the old name, there was no mountain name 「鳥海山(chokai san)」

In the history of Rokugoku (orthodox history) such as "続日本後紀(shoku nihon koki)" (completed in 11th year of Jogan (869)),
this mountain is named "ohomonoimi no ohokami" of Zinza in Sakumi-gun Was called

The reason why it was called in this way and was revered as the Meishin Shrine was the period
when the Yamato Imperial Court was struggling to build a Ritsuryo state. The period of Keiun (704-708) and Wado (708-715) It coincides with the time when the Ezo expedition that started from the north to the beginning of the present north of Akita Shonai and beyond

At that time, it is said that this region was covered with primeval forest and there were Ezo that were chased in the south.
which had been chased to the south . In such a situation, Chokaisan, an active volcano that constantly explodes and occasionally explodes It seems to have been awe-inspiring for the Imperial Court

Under this circumstance, "Ohomonoimi no ohokami" is said to be "monument" (to hate sinister uncleanness as a sacrifice).
The theory that Yamato worshiped in advance as a god (active volcano) that causes mountain explosions was partly due to the fact that mountain worship was active.
It is supposed that it was supposed to have been

Controversy over "Ichinomiya" ・吹浦(fuku ra)and蕨岡(warabi oka) debate

As a mountain of training for Shinto and Buddhism, as a new god
Chokai san has an altitude of 2,236m. Mountain worship is at its peak.
At the main climbing entrance
・Yajima/Otaki (Kigata entrance) Akita Prefecture side
・Fukiura and Warabioka Yamagata Prefecture had four locations

It is a complicated aspect involving denominational and Buddhist denominational conflicts, etc. Different believers form a certain power at each entrance, and it was very common for them to disagree with each other.

In the Edo period, a controversy began to emerge, arguing for the right place for a village at the foot of the mountain by insisting on the management and supervision right of the "Gongendo at the summit" (currently the "head office"). government is also involved in controversy, such as Han "will continue to vigorously endlessly followed

Gotenden at the top of the mountain

・Fukiura precedes Warabioka when responding to the Shinto-Buddha Separation Ordinance in 1868 (Meiji 1868)
・Members of Fukiura devote all Shinto to Meiji (3rd year of Meiji) The next company name will also be the Daimonsai Shrine.
・May 1871 (Meiji 4) The Daimonsai Shrine in Fukiura will be lined up with the Kokusun Chusha, and it will also be possible to manage the Gongendo on the summit.

The warriors of Warabioka have repeatedly petitioned Yamagata Prefecture and the Meiji government from Shinobu after Shinobi to try to regain their rights, but the litigation also fails. I thought

・August 7, 1880 (August 7, 1880) The left minister, Arisugawa Miya, will give a notice to his son, "The Gongendo at the summit will serve as the main shrine for the big shrine, and the big shrines of Fukiura and Warabioka will be used as the shrine (later the mouth). Nonomiya)”
・This notification was implemented in 1884 and the conflict between the two parties was settled.

The content of this irregular ritual system, which was issued as an eclectic proposal after a long debate,
is that "Kuchinomiya" of "Fukuura" and "warabi oka" is "Kokunomiya" The priest, who has a shrine office as a ``great gods shrine'',

is that both shrine offices will replace the shrine at the mountaintop main shrine located in Fukiura every year for one year.

chokaizan omonoimi shrine (fuku ra kuchi no miya)

鳥海山大物忌神社(chokaizan omonoimi shrine) is Ichinomiya Dewa Kuninomiya. There are 3 shrines with Mt. The Satomiya called "kuchi no miya" is located in two places, "「吹浦(fuku ra)」" and "「蕨岡(warabi oka)」". It is an old company


Characteristics of warabi oka's history and luck

As mentioned above, there is a power struggle at each of the trails in the holy place of Shugendo, "chokai san," and there was a complicated relationship involving sectarian confrontations.

Among them, Warabioka Kuchinomiya is located at the southwest foot of Mt. Chokai.

It is said that during the Edo period, it controlled the key to the "Gongen-do of the summit" (currently "Headquarters") and was a great power of 33 Sobo (25 "Fukiura" and 18 Yajima).

Characters of the “warabi oka” palace's auspicious “Chinkaisan Kiseki Hiki” (Hoei 6th year 1709) and “Chokaisan Engi Wasan” (Kaei 5th year 1852) written around this time are the actors. It is a point to explain the premise that (role small angle) was opened.

・It was named "Mt. Chokai" because the "Gokai no Mori" was seen when the actor (role Kokaku) first climbed the mountain at "Mt. Chokai".

・Because evil spirits called "long and long legs" lived in "Mt. Chokai" and plagued the villagers, in the era of Emperor Tenmu(天武天皇), a pilgrim who continued his training(役小角)defeated the devil and opened the mountain trail.

This kind of auspiciousness is also said to be due to the intention to counter it by advocating a theory that is older than the theory that was originally founded by "Jikaku Daishi (Enjin)", which is transmitted to "Fukura".
