Imakumano Shrine Reviews
熊野信仰が盛んな平安後期後白河法皇によって創建、清盛公父子によって造営された神社です。本来ならば本殿を始め神社内一週して熊野古道巡りが出来るのですが、台風のせいで京の熊野古道側は閉鎖となっていました。早い復旧を願うものです。 more »It is a shrine built by peace late post-Shirakawa Hou Kumano faith is thriving, was built by the Qing Sheng Park and his son. If the original had become closed Kumano Kodo's capital because of the Typhoon is started the main shrine in 1 week with the Kumano ancient road tour. It is a wish for a speedy recovery.
熊野信仰を京都で具現化した神社で、後白河法皇がこの地に勧請した。建築にあたった平清盛は熊野の土や材を用いたとされるが、境内のくすの木は熊野から持ってきたものを法皇が手ずから植えたものという。くすは大木で、いかにもご神木といった雰囲気がある。境内には神仏習合を表現した立体曼荼羅が築かれているほか、熊野古道の道程がコンパクトに再現されており、いかにも熊野詣を再現した風が漂っている。 more »Shrine of Kumano faith embodied in Kyoto, transferred to Shirakawa Hou. Taira no Kiyomori undertook the building of Kumano and will be using the material and in camphor tree was brought from Kumano planted by Pope said. A tree that really please there is, such as sacred atmosphere. It reproduces the Kumano, Kumano ancient road has been reproduced on compact three-dimensional mandala representing the Shinto Temple is being built, as well is in the air.
The 900-year-old tree is awesome, literally. It is a symbol of divinity since it was planted by Emperor Go-Shirakawa himself, and after the pest disasters and lack of rain in the recent years causing most of the leaves to fall, the branches - which were hardly seen in the prime days, are now revealed and they looked like an astonishing replica of the Buddha with a thousand arms. This was described in Japanese on the notice board by the entrance, and I thought it was quite true. Wow.
Not bad for a shrine.
