Samukawa Shrine Reviews
お祓いを依頼する際は、宮司さんに具体的なお願いを直接伝えて、それに沿った 祝詞を奉納してくださるそうです。 拝殿も落ち着いた雰囲気で荘厳な印象。 more »When he asks for an exorcism, he directly tells the priest a specific request and dedicates a congratulatory message accordingly. The shrine is also a calm atmosphere and a solemn impression.
台風直撃翌日、というかまだ海際は通行禁止でしたが、青空だけど炎天下のなか、庭師さんやスタッフさん達が黙々と木の手入れと清掃作業をしていました。境内はもちろん掃き浄められ、立派な神門、本殿の良さが倍増でした。やはり神社は清々しくないと。 道いっぽん挟んだところにレストランとお土産ショップがあります。 more »The day after the typhoon hit, we were still off the road, but in the midst of the flames, gardeners and staff were silently taking care of and cleaning the trees. Of course, the precincts were cleaned, and the goodness of the splendid shinmonand ei main hall was doubled. After all, the shrine is not fresh. There is a restaurant and a souvenir shop just across the street.
One of the oldest shrines in eastern Japan. Tens of thousands of people visit this shrine during the first 3 days of the year. This shrine is a holy place to get rid of your bad luck and to invite good fortunes from all directions. You write your name and address, so that a shinto priest can read them and wish your good luck. After the purification process, you can also visit the sacred garden to admire the beautiful view with a cup of matcha tea.
Nice cozy shrine. Able to see Mt. Fuji on the way.
