Shinto shrine

A shrine with a long history, founded in 1627 by a divine revelation. It is the largest Hachiman shrine in the Edo period and is still popularly known as the "Hachiman Shrine of Fukagawa”. There are 17 branch shrines in the precincts of the shrine, which are said to be beneficial for money luck, luck in winning games, and marriage.

The Fukagawa Hachiman Festival, held every year on August 15, is famous as one of the three major festivals in the Edo period, along with the Sanno Festival at Hie Shrine in Akasaka and the Kanda Festival at Kanda Myojin, and the main festival held every three years, with over 50 portable shrines parading through the streets is a sight to behold.

It is also the birthplace of Kanshin Sumo, the origin of today's sumo, and the main tournament was held in the precincts of the temple for about 100 years starting in 1684. For this reason, there are many stone monuments related to sumo, including a monument to yokozuna wrestlers, a monument to ozeki wrestlers, and a monument to wrestlers' hand and footprints.

Ino Tadataka, the first person to make a map of Japan, visited this shrine whenever he went on a surveying trip, and a bronze statue of Ino Tadataka stands next to the main torii gate on the shrine grounds. For this reason, Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine is also said to have the blessings of travel safety.

Other attractions include a museum displaying old postcards and photographs, and Japan's largest golden portable shrine, which is 4.4 meters in height and weighs 4.5 tons. On the 1st, 15th, and 28th of every month, a fair is held, with many stalls lined up around Monzennakacho Station.

    記得好幾年前去看過神社每年於8月15日舉辦的大型祭典活動「深川八幡祭」,場面相當撼人,還被濺了一身水。可惜當時只顧看熱鬧,忘了拍照片。最近有機會去這座古老的神社參拜。剛剛讀了Good Luck Tripd的文章,才知道這座神社可不一般,和相撲以及繪製了第一章日本地圖的伊能忠敬都有深厚的淵源。所以想再去好好看看文章中介紹的幾個景點。

    歷史久遠的富岡八幡宮是現東京都內最大的八幡神社。除了新年參拜外,還會定期舉辦廟會和古董市集。
    八幡宮手水舍非常氣派,兩邊各有一隻金鳳凰,手水舍附近有拜深川龍神的水池,寫完韱後放進水池裡祈求保佑🙏
    宮內也豎立了許多大關力士碑與橫綱力士碑來紀念歷年來獲得相撲比賽最高等級勝利的選手。

    這個廟是相撲運動的聖地,一進門就在入口的右側,在一個石碑上面你可以看到銘文寫着它的高度,還有手寫的著名相撲運動員們的名字,非常有意思。
