– Osu Kannon – 大須観音 – Nagoya （名古屋） – April 23, 2017 I go to the Osu Kannon area a lot for Solo Pizza and shopping. It was built during the Kamakura period in Gifu Prefecture, but it kept getting damaged by floods so Tokugawa Ieyasu moved it to Nagoya in the 1600’s. It houses a huge statue of Kannon made by Kobo Daishi, the founder of Shingon Buddhism. This goshuin is in my Inuyama Castle Goshuincho. Location
– Hachidai Hakuryuu Taisha – 八大白龍大社 – Kakamigahara （各務原市） – April 16, 2017 I’m not 100% sure how to read the kanji for this shrine. Despite the “taisha” in the name, it’s a smallish~medium sized shrine. It’s probably read one of these three ways: Hachidai Hakuryuu Taisha Hatsuta Hakuryuu Taisha Yahiro Hakuryuu Taisha Last year I visited this shrine for the fireworks at the big Ogase Hanabi Taikai. It was crazy crowded and dark and I didn’t really get to see much. When I arrived, I was surprised to see so many people. I wanted to take more photos…
– Haritsuna Jinja – 針綱神社 – Inuyama （犬山市） – April 12, 2017 Haritsuna Shrine is one of the shrines located at the base of Inuyama Castle. I’ve read it as Harimo and Haritsuna Shrine so I’m at a loss for how to read the kanji. I got my hamaya, a kind of good luck charm, here in 2018. This goshuin is in my Inuyama Castle Goshuincho.
– Sanko Inari Shrine – 三光稲荷神社 Inuyama （犬山市） – April 12, 2017 Sanko Inari Shrine is one of the three shrines at the base of Inuyama Castle. It’s extremely popular. This was the very first Goshuin I received. I love Inuyama Castle and after learning about goshuin and goshuincho I knew I really wanted a goshuincho from one of the shrines at the base of Inuyama Castle. This goshuin is in my Inuyama Castle Goshuincho.
