There is Seto jinja in front of Hiragata Bay, near Kanazawa Hakkei station. This jinja centrally gathers faith from residents around areas where this jinja locates.

Although it seems to have been enshrined since long, it is the influential origin of this jinja that Minamoto Yoritiomo built this jinja by calling in Izu Mishima Myojin in 1180. A enshrined deity is Ooyamatumino-mikoto. And Susanoo and Sugawara Michizane, etc are worshiped as deities except main enshrined deity.

 

Seto jinja has atmosphere of Kanazawa Hakkei and locates in front of Hiragata Bay.


When you take Keikyu line from Yokohama station and get off at Kanazawa Hakkei station, Hiragata Bay is spreading in front of you. Seto jinja locates in front of Hiragata Bay.

A hall of worships.
If you go through the trii and climb up stairs, you see a hall of worships. Seto jinja's back is surrounded by steep slopes, and forests such as camphor trees spread out.

 

A enshrined deity, Ooyamatumino, was born between Izanagi and Izanami.


A enshrined deity worshiped in Seto jinja is Ooyamatumino-mikoto who was born from Izanagi and Izanami. According to a myth of Shinto, many deities were born from Ooyamatumino and Kayanohimenokami, and are appearing in the myth's many scenes. I think that Amenosagiri and Kuninosagiri, deities of fog, and Konohanasakuya, a wife of Niniginomikoto who is the grandchild of Amaterasu, are famous. Ooyamatumino is worshiped from ancient time as not only a mountain deity but also a harbor deity.
