About the festival of The No Shrine (tonashi shrine)

Annual Festival "Shina Festival" (August 24th and 25th every year)

"Shina-no-Matsuri" is a festival of the late things between Tosa Shrine and Naruno Shrine (tonashi shrine), and it was a Shinto shrine where the god of the festival who was relocated to Tosa Shrine visited Motomiya.

From Tosa Shrine, the Shinto cherry blossoms of Naru-no-shrine were often stopped in the Edo period because of marine accidents, and now festivals are held at both shrines.

On the 24th, the 24th is the main festival on the 25th of the night before the festival.

Autumn Festival "Old Festival Chile Heppo" Lunar Calendar August 22-23

The autumn festival "Thanks to the Rich Harvest of Five Grains" will be held in September.

The feature of this festival is called "Chileheppo" and it is an ancient Shinto shrine where young boys and girls are married in front of God as "children of God".

Nine Chili Heppos parade through the precincts singing a song, and the events (boys) and shrine girls (girls) perform 339 degrees.

This is an autumn festival where the villager prays for the gratitude of the harvest, the marriage, and the prosperity of the descendants, and it is said that it has a deep relation with the benefit of the marriage.

Reiwa profit from the marriage of the person

The "tonashi shrine" is said to benefit various marriages.

There is Reiwa story as the marriage of the age of the war which should be noted.

The 126th Emperor Tokuhito and Empress Masako were married before their marriage.
An aide of the Imperial Household Agency prayed for marriage at Narumi Shrine, and his wish came true and he was married.
We were able to benefit from an important marriage for the Japanese people.


Visit the Shrine (Pray at the Shrine)

I introduce the state when I visited this shrine.

From Kochi Station via R56 about 37km car 60 minutes
I'm sitting in the Naruno area in the back of Uranouchi Bay.

Because it is a shrine built to worship by ship from the sea, there is a guide board of "Kuroso Okuin" on the way to the other side of the road with the feeling of going around the bay by car.

There's not a single wave in the bay, and the beautiful scenery feels like you're traveling to a whole other world.

Crabs are also on the seawall and don't run away.

As you follow the gentle sea and the road along the seawall, you'll find a red torii gate that you could see from a long way.

"Ara Shrine" sits in front of the red torii gate.
They make a clean and clean axe

The vehicle will be guided to stop at the space in front of this red torii gate.

Arrived at Nunashi Shrine (tonashi shrine)

When you go through the red torii gate, you will see the Narumi Shrine precincts on your right, and on your left you will find a seawall and a stone torii gate right next to the sea.

The seawall in front of the shrine is open.

At the annual festival "Shinae Matsuri", funatorigo from the sea will go up from this pier to the precincts.

This is because "hitokotonushi no
who escaped the capital a long time ago and landed in this place follows the reason why it landed here. The approach to Naru-no-shrine was originally "sea", or it was said that there was no road and the worship was a ship from the other side.

I came by private car, but I value the regular route and start the pilgrimage from the pier as a way from the sea.

But it's a beautiful view. It feels natural that God stayed here.

In the "Nitorii"
located on the pier, a shrine is enshrined, and a note rope hangs, and it is called "Naru-no-shrine" on the flat forehead. I bow and go through.

The approach extends straight to the shrine building The shrine building is located northwest toward the sea, and the precincts are surrounded by a low Tamagaki, and "Three Torii" is built at the entrance.

After all, it is enshrined, and the note line rope hangs, and there is "Naru-no-shrine" in the flat forehead, and care and faith are transmitted to the hand.

When I bow again and go through the torii gate, the name of the company is "Important Cultural Property Narumi Shrine" on the left hand side.

There is a "Temizusha" on the right hand side, and it cleanses it.

Speaking of water, there's a well on the right side towards the shrine.
There are no ponds or rivers around here, so you can imagine that a well with good water by the sea had a very valuable and important meaning.

Between the stone lanterns on the front approach, there is an old Shiba Inu.

On the right hand side of the precincts is the monument of Fujiwara Ietaka.

A boat floats in the sea of Tosa and it hangs out.

The sky of the capital is the end of the thaw.

This song is a song that the dreamer Fujiwara Ietaka Asaomi of the Heian period thought of the state of the boat play from the capital of Kyoto and sang.

The boat play began as a Shinto shrine shinto shrine more than 1,240 years ago (759) from now,
Ichinomiya Tosa Shrine in Kochi City also became a god's day, and both became lively boating full of Uranouchi Bay.
It became a famous thing in the whole country, and famous music people such as the light for the Japanese 邇 part from the capital of Kyoto sometimes turned down, and it played music and served the festival.

From the precincts guide board

I will go to the hall of worship

The family crest of the Yamauchi family, lord of the Tosa Domain, "marui mitsubakashiwa mon" is displayed in gold.

It is said that it is "Naru-no-shrine" in the flat forehead.

Give me a prayer.
When you reach the god of worship, where you worship God's power, pray with your hands together.

The main hall of the worship hall has a beautiful colorful color on the pillars, such as the amber-painted Kanuki set.

It is designated as an important cultural property of the country together with the main hall, the Mint Hall, and the worship hall.

The sculptures on the front of the main shrine and the left and right long presses are really splendid.

When I return to the front of the shrine, I return to the approach to the sea and torii from the quiet sea beyond it.

I go through the three torii gates and look back and bow.

After all, I want to go back to the tip of the pier again, and I go through the two torii gates.

"Rai" (90-degree bow)

Emperor Yuroku (21st) February 4
When the Emperor was hunting at Yamato Katsuragiyama, the Emperor met a word lord god, and the word and behavior flowed a word master god to Tosa.

The washed-out word god is enshrined in "Kamonochi" at first in Tosa, and is later transferred to "Tosa Takagamo Taisha" (present-day Tosa Shrine).

Then, in the 8th year of Tenpei Hoji (764), by Mr. Kamo's message, the main god of the word was moved to "Katsuragiyama Higashishita Takamiya Okagami" (present-day one-word shrine) in Yamato country.

However, the Japanese soul is still enshrined in Tosa province."
