Name of facility Yanagihara Inari-jinja Shrine
Overview It is the village shrine of Yanagihara 1,2-chome in which Ukano Mitamano Mikoto deity is enshrined. It is said to be founded in 1599 or 1606. Tradition says that Yukaku, the head of Yanagihara temple dedicated a sacred god statue and reconstructed the temple in 1794 after the hall was washed away by the flood in 1786. The second torii gate in front of the hall for worship has the engraved name of an era and the year 1796 and there is also the hand washbowl engraved the name of an ear, the year 1830 and Tomura Chaya or the village tea stall on the right side of it. That tells us that the bowl was dedicated by a tea stall located in Ushida Kochi, Senju 3-chome (current around Senju Akebono-cho). In the precincts, there is Takagi-jinja shrine where Takamusubi-no Kami, Oyamaiku-no Kami and Tokugawa Ieyasu were enshrined. In the Edo period, it was called Dairoku Ten-sha shrine, but with the separation policy of distinguishing Shinto and Buddhism in the beginning of the Meiji era, the name of god was changed from Dairoku Ten to Musubi-no Kami and the shrine name was also changed from Dairoku Ten-sha to Takagi-jinja shrine. Fuji-kou association was formed in Yanagihara village in those days around 1920 (1920), and the people started to climb Mt. Fuji. In 1933, Fuji-tsuka mound was made with lava and cobblestones carried by freight car from the north foot of Mt. Fuji. Konohana Sakuya Hime-no Mikoto was re-enshrined by Sengen-jinja shrine.
