Travel Guide - Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine

InformationInformation

Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine is dedicated to Shinto deities associated with the sea and sea travel, in commemoration of a safe passage to Korea by Empress Jingu in 200. Later, the empress herself also became enshrined as a god here. This shrine is the head shrine of over 2,300 Sumiyoshi-jinja shrines all over Japan.
Having survived the bombing in the World War II, Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine actually has a couple of buildings that date back to 1810. The shrine was originally founded in 211 and the present buildings are faithful replicas of the originals. They offer a rare opportunity to see a Shinto shrine that predates the influences of Chinese Buddhist architectural styles.
The shrine's main buildings are roofed with a kind of thatch rather than the tiles on most later shrines. Other interesting features are the old style Torii gate called "Kaku-Torii" with its square pillars, a collection of more than 600 stone lanterns donated by seafarers and business people, a stone stage for Bugaku (court music and dance) performances donated by Toyotomi Hideyori (a son of Toyotomi Hideyoshi) and the attractive Taiko-bashi Bridge, an arched bridge donated by Yodogimi (a wife of Toyotomi Hideyoshi) with park surroundings.
