  • Shrine was on had been put on Ashikaga station "a map", attracted to the name, and let's stop by because it was decided. Map out the shaved gate, was painted as quickly is that isn't possible. When I asked local stamp rally was held there in high school still seems to know thought it would be a equivalent minor shrine,. Thus finally found 逆藤 tenmangu certainly shaved the right behind there, garden houses and build have become integrated, it will probably go unnoticed. I thought. But I think there is Wisteria trellis in front of the shrine as one of the knowledge factors. Many people deprived of the small but beautiful purple wisterias, here's shrine and go unnoticed, that is my opinion. The origin of the name of the "逆藤 shrine" was something like the following. Takehisa 7 years (1196) Ashikaga and taro, rope, Ashikaga and the desire to clear innocent, a suspicion of the lawful wife of Hōjō tokiko Wanida. And the thing is called the upside-down Fuji Tenjin whip rather than misplaced remains at that time, ago the Tenman-gu shrine's stabbed upside-down Fuji branches became big things from. Ashikaga and taro, is flattered by the Lier righteous anger and from I escaped, but eventually cornered and committed suicide in the mountains of the kiryu or has been needle. Shrine is a sad story a false accusation was unlikely, but now that it's attainment and seems to have been. Late April be Wisteria in full bloom-in early may, neighbors want shops "with and" to might also stop by to visit.
