Etc. any number of business prosperity of the shrine, is “Hanmachi” and not only here in the shrine to get the name, what is referred to as the only prosperous business of the shrine in Japan that there is “Hanjo shrine”. In addition to business prosperity is also likely there is also a divine favor, such as a good match fulfilled and cottage safety. However, it’s also a little strange episode that coils round here.

A small shrine in the place where entered the Muromachi Takatsuji to the west. Its shrine called “Hanjo Miya of”, we have a interesting Episozo. There is merit pond to people of the garden that Fujiwara ShigeruNaru the Heian era, there Ikishima the princess’s life (Ichiki Shimahime of Mikoto ※ Sarasvati), (preciousness of was Gorihime) Tashin the princess’s life, 湍津 the princess’s life (for It is celebrated from deity Aki Miyajima three Himekami that is make a fortune has been the reason for the divine favor of the business prosperity of Mikoto) of Gitsuhime. This part describes loosely.

And, the name “Hanjo”. First of all, Fujiwara ShigeruNaru. I will read the “Hanmachi” at this point. Nante I feel Even good name auspicious. However, this is so not in the origin of this name.Toka Benzaiten an alias needle talented woman I heard say (beam talented woman), it is in turn, became a “beam talented woman, half talented woman, half Come on woman, is Anjo, Hanjo”.

Uji Shui third volume of the story episodes “Nagato before Tsukasa woman, when the funeral, that the change in the Exchange” has been written to.

Two daughters before Nagato Kokushu near Muromachi Takatsuji will Itaso. Although sister lived in Muromachi Takatsuji Totsugi married early, sister to return to the home from the left the Miyazukae, not he also fixed man, corresponding to the west of sometimes through come of the man and the main room south at the mouth of Tsumado Talking that had a. The likely sister died suffering from a serious illness at the time of about 27 years old.

Put in a coffin the body of his sister for the funeral, carried to the cemetery of Torihen’no, if one line is going Oroso the coffin from the car, there was awfully lighter. For some reason, when the coffin is a peek because it was a little open, there was no body of the daughter. So can not even funeral, bodies and try to go home to the wife doorway, I was sleeping in dressed like the original.

I had joined so that the same is also the next day so suspicious I thought it can not be helped, but also did not want to be in to have the coffin of the lid is opened. And, third time. Now also you can not lift the coffin. A certain old man who had been seen “Do not want you to fill in here.” It. Since there is no way, the bodies of daughter When I dug a grave ran lightly. Story that although it has been settled down to do so, at the beginning that the sister was moving, the villagers continue to move one after another Therefore Kimiwaru, this neighborhood is everyone just no longer mound live remained.

I no doubt a good shrine auspicious, but among the people, a woman unmarried to pray even rumors that “can not be married.” I do not believe you believe is up to you.
