Isasumi Shrine

更新日:2017年02月27日

005-伊佐須美神社-スポット-0

It is said that two sets of father and child military leaders—one from Hokurikudo, another from Tokaido—encountered each other in this area when trying to unify Japan, which at the time was under four separate rulers. This is thought to have led to the name Aizu, which literally means “meeting place.” At this time, Izanagi-no-mikoto and Izanami-no-mikoto, the gods who gave rise to Japan, were enshrined on Mt. Mikaguradake (on the border of Niigata prefecture) in order to protect the country, and it is said that this is the origin of Isasumi Shrine. The gods were later moved to Mt. Myojingatake and afterwards the current site of the shrine. Since then, around 1,500 years have passed. The shrine possesses the highest Iwashiro province shrine ranking and is also the tutelary shrine for all of Aizu. It is revered by people from within and outside of the prefecture. The shrine's sacred Usuzumi Cherry Blossom Tree is one of the Aizu's five famous cherry blossom trees.
