Arimatsu Tenmangu Shrine
Sugawara no Michizane
In the early Kansei period, the fourth-generation head priest of the Shimogamo Shrine, Bumpō Manjizai, relocated the shrine to its current location. It is said that the present hachimote-style main hall was built in the seventh year of the Bunsei era. At the summit of Tenman-gū, before its relocation, numerous poems and writings offered by thousands of people were buried, giving rise to the name "Fuminomine" (Mount of Writings).
New Year Festival (January 1st)
Spring Festival (Every third Sunday in March)
Formerly held on the 25th day of the second lunar month (anniversary of Sugawara no Michizane's passing), this festival includes prayers for academic achievement, warding off misfortune, safety of the family, and prosperity in business. Purification rituals and offerings are also conducted.
Autumn Festival (Every first Sunday in October)
Formerly celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, this festival was dedicated to abundant harvests and gratitude. In the Meiji era, it transformed into a festival with ornate float processions (Yamakarimatsuri) symbolizing the town's prosperity. Three designated cultural assets of Nagoya city, the intricately designed festival floats (Hotei cart from Higashimachi, Karako cart from Nakamachi, and Empress Jingū cart from Nishimachi), are pulled along the Tokaido road.
