Geocache Description:


Hie Shrine is a very venerable shrine, which was established in 807.

Every year on the first Sunday in April, the famous Yabusame festival takes place in this Shrine. Yabusame is the exciting Shinto ritual combining archery and horseback riding. In the festival, they set three targets along the 150m front approach toward the shrine. And a warrior riding a horse shoots arrows from the top of the running horse and hits the targets. The festival has over 1200 years history and is designated as one of the prefectural intangible folklore cultural assets.

We hid the cache along the front approach. Unfortunately, you cannot seek it during the festival. Visit here on another day. Enjoy a quiet and holy atmosphere in a Japanese traditional shrine.

日枝神社は807年に創建された由緒ある神社です。

毎年4月の第一日曜日には有名な流鏑馬(やぶさめ)祭が行われます。流鏑馬は弓術と乗馬が組合わさった迫力ある神事です。行事では、本殿に向かう150mの参道上に3つの的が用意され、馬に乗った武者が走る馬上から弓で射落とします。この祭は1200年以上の歴史があり、県の無形民俗文化財の1つに指定されています。

この参道沿いにキャッシュを仕掛けました。残念ながら祭の間の探索は不可能です。それ以外の日に訪れ、歴史ある日本の神社のおごそかで神々しい雰囲気を楽しんでください。
