Egaraten Shrine Reviews
福岡太宰府、北野天満宮と並ぶ日本三天神の一つで、菅原道真を祭神とする。長い参道を歩いて、お参りしたが、心落ち着くお宮。 more »It is one of the three tenjin of Japan along with Fukuoka Dazaifu and Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, and sugawara michima is assumed to be a festival god. We walked along the long approach and prayed, but we calmed down.
鎌倉駅東口から鎌２０大塔宮ゆきのバスに乗車。終点で降りる予定でしたが、車内に荏柄天神社の吊り広告が。急遽終点の一つ手前の天神前バス停で下車しました。 荏柄天神社は、古くは太宰府・北野（京都）と並ぶ三天神社と称されたと書かれていました。現代ではその面影は無いものの、石段の上からの眺めは素敵でした。 more »From the east exit of Kamakura Station, we got on the bus of Kama-20 Daitogu Yuki. I was going to get off at the end, but there was a hanging advertisement of Eigoten Shrine in the car. I got off at tenjinmae bus stop in front of one of the end points in a hurry. It was written that The Ejo Ten Jinja shrine was formerly called Santen Shrine along side Dazaifu and Kitano (Kyoto). Although there is no appearance in the present age, the view from the top of the stone step was wonderful.
