On both sides of the approach to the shrine with a view of the worship hall, there is a pair of stone top dogs, which always protect the gods. This powerful and dignified komainu was dedicated in 1938 by a then-famous Japanese confectionery shop called "Oki Kyodo" in Hondori 5-chome, Shimada, the year after the start of the Sino-Japanese War (China Incident), and was carved by Shimada stonemason Masuno-chohei. The right pedestal is carved with the words "Takeyu" and the left pedestal is carved with "Nagahisa", and it seems that it is a top dog dedicated to pray for Japan's victory and peace, and the safety of those who went to war.

COOL JAPAN VIDEOS Photo Contest PR

Introducing the photos posted on "Everyone's Post"! This is a pickup post of the inbound tourism information SNS "Cool Japan Video". Today, I would like to introduce "umestagram" post "Gotokuji Temple in Tokyo". It's a cute photo of the beckoning cats with simple expressions. Gotokuji Temple, which is related to Maneki-neko, is located in Setagaya Ward, Tokyo in the Kanto region. A long time ago, Naotaka Ii, the lord of the Hikone clan, was beckoned by a cat in the temple on his way home from falconry and went inside, and suddenly a thunderclap came. The episode that he was able to avoid difficulties thanks to the cat and also enjoyed talking with Kazuhisa is the origin of "Maneki Neko's Birthplace". In the wake of this, Godeji Temple was revived in the 10th year of Kanei (1633) with the support of Ii Naotaka. At Godeji Temple, the beckoning cat is called "Maneki Neko". In the "Shofukuden" in the precincts, various sizes of Shofuku cat children are dedicated, and the sight is breathtaking. At the shrine office, you will receive a red seal and an amulet and figurine of a Shofuku cat child, so how about a souvenir? At the café "Mahorodo Aozuki" in the vicinity, you can enjoy a menu related to Godeji Temple such as "Maneki Nekodora". Access is about a 10-minute walk from Gotokuji Station on the Odakyu Odawara Line, and about a 5-minute walk from Miyanosaka Station on the Tokyu Setagaya Line. There are many signs and figurines with cat motifs in front of the station and in the shopping street, and there are many highlights while going from the station to Gotokuji Temple.
