Le sanctuaire Takagi de Hikifune

Hikifune Takagi Shrine

The Onigiri Shrine

 

Located near Hikifune station, the small Takagi shrine is a special place of worship. It does not go unnoticed between its purple color and its onigiri statuettes! However, it remains little-known... And even today, few visitors are aware of this little Tokyo pearl!

 

 

A pun at the origin of the theme of the sanctuary

Contrary to what one might think, Takagi Shrine is not a place where foodies come to pray for more rice.

 

Responding to sweet name " Takagi Musubi no Kami ", the local deity is actually associated with marriage and spiritual ties. A deity who therefore has nothing to do at first sight with the onigiri , except for his name.

 

Indeed, the references to onigiri actually come from a funny joke that the current management of the sanctuary decided to play!

 

Although the word " Musubi " refers to a very important Shinto concept referring among other things to the link that exists between all things, the latter also designates '' omusubi '', the other name given to Japanese rice balls.
