bijin Kannon o-mamori 美人観音御守


- quote
Nariaiji Temple (成相寺) is a temple of the Shingon sect of Japanese Buddhism. The temple was originally located near the top of Mount Tsuzumigatake overlooking Miyazu Bay in the north, but was moved about 250 years ago to its current location further down the mountain after a landslide. The current temple grounds are still high enough on the slope that there are good viewpoints from where you can look out over the Amanohashidate Sandbar below.

Nariaiji Temple is part of the 33 Kannon Temples of Western Japan, a pilgrimage route to various temples across the region that are dedicated to Kannon, the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy. Appropriately the main treasure of Nariaji Temple is a carved wooden statue of Kannon that dates from the Heian Period.

Below the main hall is a small wooden bell tower containing the "bell of neutrality". The bell is completely enclosed in its tower and has never been struck due to the sad legend about its origins concerning a baby that was accidentally dropped into the molten metal that was cast into the bell. A little further down the slope is an impressive five story pagoda. The bright red structure is built in the Kamakura architectural style, and was also formerly located higher up the mountain before it was restored and moved to its current spot in the late 1990s.

betsugu shingu shrines

[ . BACK to DARUMA MUSEUM TOP . ]
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


betsuguu, betsugū 別宮 Betsugu separate shrines

shinguu shingū 新宮 Shingu "new shrine"


Shingu Jinja 南国市十市 Nankoku town, Kochi, Summer purification ritual



quote
Betsugū
Literally, "detached shrine" or "separate shrine."
An auxiliary shrine existing in a main-branch relationship to its central or main shrine (honsha, hongū ).
Also called bessha 別社
edamiya 枝宮 - edayashiro, eda yashiro 枝社 - branch shrine

.
In practice, a detached shrine and its main shrine may be related in a variety of ways, but in principle the relationship is similar to that of a main shrine to other kinds of auxiliary shrines such as
imamiya, shingū (新宮), sessha and massha.

A detached shrine may be located either within the same precincts as the main shrine with which it is associated, or removed at a considerable distance.

Typical examples of betsugū include those associated with the shrines
Iwashimizu Hachimangū and
the Grand Shrines of Ise.

During the medieval period, Iwashimizu possessed "divine estates" (shinryō) throughout Japan; branch shrines of Iwashimizu that were dedicated (see kanjō) at those estates and thus became local tutelaries (chinju no kami) came to be known as betsugū of Iwashimizu.

The Grand Shrines of Ise are known for the ten betsugū of the Inner Shrine (Naikū) and the four of the Outer Shrine (Gekū); these detached shrines possess a unique relationship to the rituals or objects of worship (saijin) of the main shrines, and are thus given the title of gū (originally a "palace," a term reserved for shrines of particularly high status). Their special status is also reflected in the fact that they celebrate a rebuilding each twenty years in the same manner as the regular removals (shikinen sengū ) of the main shrines.

In addition to these usages, the term betsugū is also given to one of the temporary festival shrines (otabisho) utilized during festivals at the shrine Yasaka Jinja in Kyoto.
