Yamatohime no Miya Shrine

Looking for a fascinating cultural experience? I highly recommend visiting the Yamatohime no Miya shrine located in Kuratayama! You’ll find it at the foot of the mountain between the Inner Shrine and Outer Shrine, both located at each end of Miyuki Road. The 11th Emperor Shunin’s daughter, Princess Yamato Himenomikoto, is enshrined in Yamatohime no Miya shrine.

This shrine is next to the Inner Shrine, which is the main hall. I’m told that there are several facilities on the same premises named after the Shinto shrine, such as Jingu ChouKokan, Jingu Bijutsukan and Jingu Nogyokan. These form a cultural institution of Yamatohime. Legend has is that Yamatohime is a spiritual woman who can predict the future.

The entrance to the shrine is inconspicuous, with beautiful, leafy trees welcoming you as you walk in. When I entered the forest, it felt as though I was entering another world! The entire experience provided me with a sense of peace and tranquility. This shrine attracts many devotees who believe that you can receive spiritual power by praying sincerely.

倭姫宮(やまとひめのみや)は、内宮(ないく)と外宮(げくう)を結ぶ、御幸道路(みゆき)の中ほど、倉田山にあります。

皇大神宮(こうたいじんぐう)の別宮(べつぐう)で、第11代垂仁天皇の皇女である
倭姫命(やまとひめのみこと)をお祀りしています。別宮には、「わけみや」という意味があり、
御正宮である内宮のつぎに尊いお宮のことです。 伊勢市中心部から内宮に向かう御幸道路の途中の皇学館大学の向かいに位置し、
同じ敷地内にある神宮徴古館、神宮美術館、神宮農業館という神宮にちなんだ文化施設とともに倭姫文化の森を形成しています。

入口は目立たないですが、参道は広く、繁った木々の中へと別世界へ入っていく感覚に加え、
その静寂さと厳かさは何とも言えません。神宮創建のために尽力した倭姫命は
卓越した精神力と未来を見渡せる神通力のようなものを併せ持った女性であると言い伝えられています。

そんな命をお祀りしたお宮で真摯にお祈りすることで強いパワー授かることができるかも知れません。
