I went to visit for the first time. Kibune Shrine!
You can climb the stairs a lot, but you can park a few cars from the side street.
I think it's still a little early for the autumn leaves, but the scenery was good.
It seems to be very beneficial, such as a dive stone to prevent evil and a round wish stone.

I'm glad I was able to visit you.

The deities are the three pillars of Okuninushi, Kotoshironushi, and Sukuna bi kona.
Although it is located near the fishing port of Manazuru, the shrine is not suitable for the sea.
Our company name is Kibune, but it was not a solicitation from Kibune Shrine in Kyoto, but until the end of the Edo period, it was called "Kinomiya". The company name was changed to Kibune Shrine in the first year of the Meiji era.
According to the company's biography, our company's house was founded in the first year of Kanpei (889) when it discovered 12 wooden god statues and letters from the offshore of Mitsuishi (a famous spot in the photo of sunrise) at the tip of Cape Manazuru. It is transmitted as the background.
This is also a characteristic of "Kinomiya faith", "God approaching from the sea".

There was a nursery school next door, and the voices of energetic children echoed. Take good care of your parents! It feels like, nostalgic for a long time. Such a teaching was alive in this city. There are 108 steps in the precincts. There are as many stairs as there are worldly desires. It was very clean and the parking lot was near the main shrine, so I had to go down the stairs and climb, but it made me feel refreshed. The guardian dogs are also a little strange type with both children, there are guardian dogs in the lanterns, and the small guardian dogs in some places are also very cute, it is a shrine with many attractions.
