The Chiba shrine is dedicated to the Shinto deity Myoken, a bodhisattva who is the personification of Polaris, the North Star. It is believed that Myoken offers protection from bad luck and bodily harm. The main gates to the shrine are elaborate and intricate and feature the twelve animals that are represented on the traditional calendar. Surrounding the shrine are picturesque gardens. Winding paths lead through Japanese style landscaping while small bridges lead over koi-filled ponds.

Chiba Shrine Reviews & Ratings

  • Very quiet, peaceful and beautiful.

  • チョット落ち着く場所です。桜の時期に是非訪れて下さい。ちかくに豆大福で有名な和菓子屋さんもあります。4月19日現在行ってみたら八重桜が満開、それに藤の花が咲いていました!いい香り。もっと沢山植えてほしい

  • 主祭神である北辰妙見尊星王を祀る神社です。地元の人の信仰が篤く、安産祈願・厄除けの神社で知られています。歴史の古い神社ですが、改築されたのか綺麗です。 神社内には駐車場はありませんが、道路を挟んで反対側に契約駐車場がありますがやや割高なので、栄町・要町の安いコインパーキングを利用する方が良いでしょう。

  • 五円玉いっぱいもって参拝がおすすめ。干支にちなんだものとかあって楽しい!おみくじの種類も豊富。祈祷は沢山並んでいても割りと早く呼ばれます。駐車場は平日でも混雑していたりするので、コインパーキングで停めることが多いです。

  • 妙見様の北極星と天の川を模した濃紺の御朱印帳が美しいです。1/1〜2/3までは限定御朱印。印刷の配布のみでした。本殿は日本初の重社殿。また南の入り口、分霊社尊星殿は凄いパワースポット!東の日天楼『陽明柱』と西の月天楼『光輝柱』にはぜひ心静かに触れてみてくださいね。
