天目一神社  西脇市大木町

鍛冶の神様を祀る天目一神社。
鳥居の大きさに驚き、参道の広さと奥行きに感動する。明るくてとても雰囲気の良い神社。

Ame-no-ma-hitotsu Shrine, the god of smith.
It looks large and wide and bright. I like this shrine.




勧進相撲の土俵

The dohyo ( sumo wrestling ring ). Sumo was originally a show to the god.

狛犬 阿

Komainu the A . Komainu are a pair of stone statues of guardians like lione or beasts. One is its mouth open and the other mouth closed.
One with open mouth is called A and the partner with closed mouth is called Un.
So the word A-Un means a good pair .




狛犬 吽

Komainu the Un.




摂社は可愛らしい。

There are small shrines of other gods called Sessha in the yard. They look cute.




周囲はこんな感じの田園。

Real countryside around the shrine.




杜を後ろから見る。

Watching the woods from behind.




杜の遠景

The woods surounding the shrine.
