-----------------------------------------------------------

The "Gion Festival" is the best-known festival in Japan, and Gion festivals are held not only in Kyoto but also throughout Japan. It dates back to the year 869 as a religious ceremony to appease the gods during the outbreak of an epidemic.
Susano-o Shrine was founded in 679 in Fukuyama City, Hiroshima, and it is said that the Gion Festival has been continuing in Susasnoo Shrine since that time. Annually, Gion Festival is carried out over the three days in July.
The festival features Mikoshi(portable shrine) parades, especially the "Mikoshi Fight" where three mikoshis each weighing around 500-kg clash with one another like a battle is so exciting and powerful.

立派な御朱印を頂きました。立派な印刷の御朱印を。しかし考えにもよるが、きれいな字の印刷と汚い字の直書き。究極の選択。印章の有難みに差はありませんがね。

備後國一之宮。茅の輪くぐりや祇園祭の発祥だという、とても古い神社です。

広い境内、大きな神社。参道の真ん中にあるのは舞台?!
名前通りの由緒ある立派な神社です。地域と共に歴史を歩んできたと思いました。
