Nachi Shrine and the waterfall in KUMANO area. A miraculous place.

投稿日:2017年12月15日 更新日:

This time, I went to the Kumano area by car.
You can go to there by train and by bus.
It is around 4 hours by car from Osaka city to the Kumano area.
It is overnight stay trip.

 

 

First day

Osaka city – Kumano Nachi shrine – Kumano Hyatama shrine

– Dinner – Hotel

 

Second day

Hotel – Kumano Hongu shrine (Park the car and move by bus)

– Hosshinmon-oji – Walking on the pilgrimage road about 3 hours

– Return to Kumano Hongu shrine (Pick up my car)

– Kumano kodo Nakahechi Museum of art – Osaka city.

 

Nachi Shrine

Kumano Nachi shrine area (Altitude 330 m)

There are two shrines and a temple on this mountain.

Nachi shrine, Hirou shrine (Shrine = waterfall: No building), Seigantoji temple.

There is one of the famous waterfall in Japan.

Nachi waterfall is 133m tall. It is the object of worship

 

Seigantoji Temple

This temple’s history started in the 4th century

by Ragyo-Syonin who came from India.

He founded the Buddha statue at Nachi waterfall base.

The building of this temple was rebuilt in 1590,

by Toyotomi Hideyoshi (a famous Samurai)

Big bell (Oho-wanikuchi: diameter 1.4m weight 450kg)

 

Nachi shrine

There are 6 Shrine buildings.

But on this time, it was under construction.

It was disappointing.

 

The big tree (camphor: about 800 years old)

I could “Tainai Meguri” (胎内巡り),

it means to pass through the womb.

I went through the tree cave.

There is a ladder inside the tree,

you can go to upstairs.

It is one of the trainings, people to be reborn

when they go through the narrow and dark spaces.

A lot of shrines and temples have Tainai Meguri in Japan.

If you find it, please try it.
