星宿山 Shoshukuzan 蓮華蔵院 Rengezo-In 王禅寺 Ozenji


神奈川県川崎市麻生区王禅寺940 / Kanagawa, Kawasaki, Asao, Ozenji

The temple was founded in 921 by 無空上人 Priest Muku from Mount Koyasan.
The temple is located on a hill to the east of 王禅寺村 Ozenji village.
When 新田義貞 Nitta Yoshisada (1301 - 1338) was at war, it was burned down by his soldiers.
In the Muromachi period it was rebuilt as a sub-temple of 高野山 Koyasan.
Sometimes it is called 関東の高野山 The Koyasan of the Kanto Area.
In 1642 it got more land from the government and a pagoda was build.
There are many large old trees in the compound.
The Temple Ozen-Ji has the original 禅寺丸柿 Zenjimaru persimmon tree, which is a registered national treasure.

王禅寺ふるさと公園 Ozenji Furusato Park
Ozenji Furusato Park was developed with themes of "Nature" and "Water" —
thanks to the abundant nature to be found in the Tama Hills area.
Views of Mount Fuji can be enjoyed from some parts, as well as tree-lined trails great for walks.

Susa Jinja 須佐神社 Susa Shrine, Izumo

島根県出雲市佐田町須佐730 / Susa, Sada-cho, Izumo City, Shimane


The Deities in residence are 須佐之男命 Susanoo no Mikoto.
and his wife, 稲田姫 Inada Hime (櫛名田比売 Kushinada Hime).
Also the parents of Inada-hime
Ashimazuchi-no-mikoto and
Temazuchi-no-mikoto

The shrine was founded in 776.
The priests of the shrine are said to be descendants of Ōkuninushi.

- quote
Susa Shrine is located deep in the mountians of Sada in Izumo.
According to the ancient chronicles, after the gods Susano and Kushinada got married at Yaegaki Shrine
and made Suga Shrine their home, they set off on their travels around the country.
When they returned to Izumo they fell in love with the area of Susa.
After giving birth to many gods and creating the country, Susano handed power over to his descendents,
and laid his soul to rest here.
Behind the main shrine hall is a giant cedar tree, which is said to be 1200 years old.
It has long been worshipped as a sacred tree, and it is believed to be the dwelling place of gods and spirits.
It has recently become a popular "healing" spot, as it has been named by a spiritual healer as one of the best energy sources in Japan.
There is a well in the shrine grounds, and it is said that Susano used the water from here to purify the area. Although the well is deep in the mountains, it contains sodium, and the water has recently been found to come from to the Sea of Japan.
The waters of the hot springs in the surrounding area also contain sodium, and are well-known for their high quality.
The area around the shrine offers some spectacular rural landscapes.
The pure water river alongside the shrine runs out into the Hiikawa River.
Mt. Sentsu at the source of the river is said the be the place where Susano descended from the Celestial Plain of heaven,
and it also features in the legend of Yamata-no-orochi, as the home of the eight-headed creature.
