Kawachi Ichinomiya Hiraoka Shrine


This shrine is famous in Japan for its age, as it was founded in 663 BC. It is also called Kawachinokuni Ichinomiya. The two deities enshrined here, Ame-no-Koyane-no-mikoto and Himemikami, are also worshipped at Kasuga Grand Shrine in Nara, earning Hiraoka Shrine the nickname “Moto Kasuga,” or “rooted in Kasuga. ”In January, this shrine performs a sacred “rice divination” rite (Kayu-ura Shinji), which is not open to the public. The Shugosai festival in October offers a grand spectacle with a parade of 20 futondaiko drum floats.
