Yasaka-jinja Shrine (a slope as for pitching a camp) is a Shinto shrine in Gionmachikitagawa, Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto. 22 (eight bottoms) one company. The old shrine ranking is a separate table Shinto shrine of the Shinto shrine central government office now in an offering from an official big shrine.
It is the total head office of the Shinto shrine (approximately 2,300) which assumes Yasaka-jinja Shrine and in the whole country an enshrined deity concerned. I am called Gion as a popular name. I am known for the Gion festival (the Gion festival) of July.
Because it was said that the Prince Susanoo who was an original enshrined deity was the guardian deity of the Buddhist temple, originally a thing called "Gion Shrine" "Gion Corporation" "feeling of Gion God Houses" was checked with "Yasaka-jinja Shrine" in = 1868 in 1868 by gods and Buddha separation law of (1868).
Of the east of the authority of eastern part of Kyoto Basin, Article 4 is enshrined to face. I collect the faith as the local patron saint (genius locus), and people many as a sightseeing spot visit it partly because I hang down on the precincts east side, and Maruyama-koen Park which is famous for a cherry tree is adjacent.
The number of the worshipers of the New Year's visit to a Shinto shrine of the first three days of a new year is late years for New Year holidays; under approximately 1 million people and Kyoto next to Fushimi-Inari Taisha Shrine come second. Tower gate is not closed and can go and worship even by night again in the same way as Fushimi-Inari Taisha Shrine from north, south, east and west every direction because the comings and goings of the person are possible (for crime prevention, I install a surveillance camera.) In addition) that the manned guard is performed even by night.
According to the company biography, I am considered to be the foundation of which visited Japan from (656 years), Kokuryo for Emperor Saimei two years.
The Prince Susanoo is considered to be the guardian deity of the Buddhist temple in connection with the birth ground of Buddha, but there is not really the trace believed in in India, China, Korea and is Japan's original God.
The name has an opinion to come from a cow's head heap of Silla, but does not give this off in an established theory either. And I enshrine it in the Yamashiro country Atago county Yasaka volost and do it when it begins though I was granted a family name of .
However, mentioned above is criticized by an existing history document that I lack in grounds. As for the pioneer scientific study on of Gion Corporation after the war, this gets constant support about "創祀 of Gion Corporation" of Shu Kubota in today.
As a result of having examined historical materials in that discussion sentence in detail, in Gion Corporation, Buddhist priest, erects a temple (876 years) for Jogan 18 years, and Kubota concludes that Gion God did the manifestation of the prime noumenon soon.
In addition, it is adopted in Yoshida Shinto in the Middle Ages and denies this as a result of documents examination that I have begun to insist from after the Kamakura era about which became a common view in the Edo era without appearing in the historical materials in the Heian era really.
Because the enshrined deity is referred to "only "Gion Tenjin" or Tenjin" at first, and the name of the Prince Susanoo ( which and did in it) does not come out to the documents top, Tenjin that is different from Prince Susanoo, first is an enshrined deity, and it is thought that did with Prince Susanoo in succession before long (at the latest in the Kamakura era).
It is a certain Shinto shrine, but is not written down to the Engi era spirit in the principles of Yin and Yang death register for a long time. Because color of the mixture of Buddhism and Shintoism is dark, and this was governed by Kofuku-ji Temple followed by Enryaku-ji Temple at first, it is considered to have been considered to be a temple not a Shinto shrine, but I give it off, and 22 later one company knows that they were seen as a Shinto shrine. It came to be believed as genius locus God of the whole area from the middle of Heian era and received ardent veneration from the Imperial Court.
As for the Gion festival, the Gion Matsuri that was performed at Shinsen garden when a contagious disease was prevalent in each place for (869 years) for Jogan 11 years came to be performed as our festival with the origin and the thing which did it every year (970 years) from in the happiness given by Heaven first year.
Gion Corporation was a professional jester of Kofuku-ji Temple at first, but Enryaku-ji Temple assumed it the subordinate temple by war at the end of tenth century. In Gion Corporation, an area of the immensity of the west coast of Kamogawa was recognized as "the precincts" in 1070, and "the drawing but a meager audience right" from Imperial Court power was approved.
The Tadashi clan succeeds to it as an execution family and comes to rule over Gion Corporation from these days (cf. Shake) of House of Emperor's age (Gion Corporation). Enryaku-ji Temple orders a cemetery of Honen to the spirit of a small animal person of the House of feeling God (1227) for Karoku era three years and destroys it.
Yoshimitsu Ashikaga let Gion Corporation become independent from Mt. Hiei-zan in 1384. But Gion Corporation did not become Shogunate subordinates in it and after that the Gion festival comes to be performed by townsfolk of Kyoto where I touched power economically and reaches it at the present.
I changed a name of "House of feeling God Gion Corporation" to "Yasaka-jinja Shrine" by mixture of shintoism and Buddhism prohibition of (I change an era in 1868 retroactively to January 1 on September 8) in 1868. I did line case to an offering from an official middle-scale shrine in (1871) in cause of the modern shrine ranking system, 1871 and was promoted to the offering from an official big shrine in (1915) in 1915.
