Kannon-do at Ninna-ji Temple The construction of Ninna-ji Temple began at the request of Emperor Mitsutaka, and was founded by Emperor Uta in the 4th year of Ninwa (888). It has been revered by successive emperors as a private temple of the Imperial Family. The photograph is a high-resolution image of 33 enshrinement Buddha statues and murals Reproduction the normally non-Open to the public Kannondo at the Tokyo National Museum. There were so many visitors that it was difficult to take pictures so as not to let people in, but this was the only one that looked like Kannondo. It's really beautiful.

It is a Kamakura Yabusame horse performed at Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine in Kamakura (Japan Heritage). It is a traditional Shinto ritual in which a dignified archer in the form of a warrior shoots a target with a bow and arrow from a galloping horseback riding. According to history, "In Kamakura, Minamoto no Yoritomo first made a dedication to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine on August 15, 1187." This Yabusame Shinto ritual is still being held on the Annual Grand Festival of Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine (September 16). It is a brave and solemn Shinto ritual where you can feel the breath of the Kamakura period. Feel the history in the traditional events of the historic town.

This is the ceiling painting "Twin Dragon Ceiling" taken at Kenninji Temple, which I visited on a walk in Kyoto sometime. When I heard about the photo contest on Japanese history being held in 2024 (Year of the Dragon), this photo was the first thing that came to mind. Dragons have been the subject of worship and worship since ancient times! Kyoto, dragons, temples, and other elements are all suitable for the subject of Japanese history, so I decided to post it.

Hida Furukawa / Gifu Hida-Furukawa / Gifu Located in Gifu Prefecture, the Hida Furukawa River is famous as Little Kyoto along with Hida Takayama. The cityscape was very beautiful, and colorful carp were swimming gracefully in the stream. The weather is nice and I would 😆 like to visit again.

#It is read as Kijima Zaki Amaterasu Soul Shrine (Konoshima ni masu Amaterumi Tamajinja). Because there is a "sericulture shrine" that worships silkworms in the precincts, it is also called #silkworm shrine. The movie village is located in Uzumasa, which is said to be an area where the power of the migrant #Qin clan was great. Since it was the base where the chief of the Qin clan lived, it became an Ultra C reading of thick and the rest of the Qin clan's ego, written as Uzumasa. Sericulture is one of the things that Mr. Hata brought to Japan. That's why there is a shrine dedicated to silkworms. Originally #Kijima Shrine (Konoshimajinja)." In the "Succession Japan Kijima" it is written as "Kijima God". It is recorded that "(Fushimi) Inari, (Ishimizu) Yawata and Kijima are not visited by people," and that people were constantly visiting. There was also a pond of fresh water here. Currently, it is said that he has moved to the forest of Shimogamo Shrine. Of particular note is the three torii gates stacked #Three Pillar Torii In the historical note in the company office, "This is said to be a remnant of the fact that Jingkyo (Netrian Christianity) came to Japan and was associated with the Qin clan." There is. There is a theory that Buddhism and Christianity were newly introduced to the Japan during this period, and there was a dispute as to which central government should adopt. Mr. Qin seems to have been promoting Christianity. Prince Shotoku, who was supported by Qin Hesheng, the chief of the Qin clan, was born in a stable, and there is an episode that is like Christ. Because there are many mysteries, it is a deep shrine where you can create delusions.
