Tono Jisha Meguri 遠野寺社巡り  temples and shrines in Tono




- quote
Tōno is located in central Iwate Prefecture, in the floodplain of the Sarugaishi River 猿ヶ石川, surrounded by a ring of mountains. Mt. Hayachine sits at the northernmost point of the city where Hanamaki, Kawai and Tōno meet. At 1,914 meters it is also the city's highest point. Mt. Rokkoushi, (1,294 meters) dominates the landscape to the east and Mt. Ishigami (1,038 meters) is the highest mountain in the west. Together these peaks form Tōno's "big three" mountains. The highest points in southern Tōno are Mt. Sadato (884 meters) on the border of Sumida and Mt. Tane (871 meters) on the borders of Sumita and Ōshū.

There is an ancient legend that in the past the hills in Miyamori blocked the Sarugaishi River creating a large lake in the Tōno area. Miyamori itself is characterized by a series of valleys to the west of Mt. Ishigami that flow west into the Sarugaishi River just below the Tase Dam.

Hayachine san 早池峰山 Mount Hayachine
at 1,917 m (6,289 ft), is the highest mountain in the Kitakami Range and the second highest in Iwate Prefecture after Mount Iwate.


Mt. Hayachine is unusual in that it lies farther east than other large mountains on Honshu and the land in this area is the oldest in Japan. As such there are flower species that are unique to this mountain.
- - - the WIKIPEDIA !

.......................................................................


- quote
Mt. Hayachine – mountain of the gods
The second highest mountain in Iwate
The Mt. Hayachine area consists of several peaks, notably its 1917m-high summit, Kengamine to the east and Nakadake and Keitosan to the west, extending over more than 10 kilometers. Mt. Hayachine is the highest peak in the Kitakami mountain range, and is counted in the book, “One Hundred Mountains in Japan”, by Fukada Kyuya (1903-1971).
The neighbors of the mountain, as well as the lord of the Morioka domain, felt deep reverence for it as a site of ancient mountain worship.
The appeal of this mountain lies in its various kinds of alpine flora, starting with Hayachine Usu Yuki So. Hikers have always been fascinated by this beautiful flora growing and blooming in such a harsh natural environment.
The area of this precious mountain and Mt. Yakushidake, a mountain south of Hayachine, is designated as a special natural treasure and a quasi-national park, and great care is taken to conserve its environment.




The view from the top of the mountain is magnificent: a field of alpine flowers, a dense forest below, and the ridge lines of Mt. Yakushidake to the south. Around the summit, there are many oddly-shaped rocks which have become objects of religious faith. “Buchi Ishi,” located in the middle of the Kawara no Bo trail (see the picture above), has a folk story about a tengu (long-nosed goblin) that hit his head on this rock.

The second Sunday in June is the opening day of the hiking season at Mt. Hayachine. Many hikers from Iwate and other prefectures gather at the top of the mountain, which holds the innermost sanctuary of Hayachine Shrine. Surrounded by hikers, Shinto priests pray for safe hiking and the sacred local dance, Hayachine Take Kagura, is performed in dedication to the god of the shrine.

- quote
Haraedo 祓戸
The tutelary kami of a place (do) for the performance of purification (harae).
... The haraedo no kami  祓所神  refers to the four kami mentioned by name in the Ōharae no norito for the Great Purification observed on the last day of the sixth month, namely
Seoritsuhime, Hayaakitsuhime (Haya-Akitsu-Hime), Ibukidonushi, and Hayasasurahime.
These four kami purify the Central Land from its imperfections (tsumi) and pollution (kegare), but since the four names are not found in the Kojiki and Nihongi, it is unclear what deities they might refer to in those two works.
Most theories suggest the four are the same kami produced by Izanagi during his purification at Awagihara. Motoori Norinaga, for example, identified Seoritsuhime with Yasomagatsuhi no kami (Yaso-Magatsuhi) ヤソマガツヒ / 八十禍津日神,
Hayaakitsuhime with Izunome no kami, and Ibukidonushi with Kamunaobi no kami.
Some theories further associate Hayasasurahime with Kazaketsuwakenooshio no kami, while still others suggest that the three kami of Sumiyoshi (Uwazutsunoo, Nakazutsunoo, Sokozutsunoo ) should be included with the haraedo no kami.
