Sogo Reido Sanctuary

Sogo Reido Sanctuary

The Sogo Reido Sanctuary is known as 御待夜祭 and a hydrangea famous place of first Saturday and Sunday in an old historic temple got close to in the name of Sogo in September. The open basis is old, and it is said that it was erected for the war dead memorial service when commander-in-chief of an expeditionary force against the barbarians, Tamuramaro Sakanoueno subjugated Boso in the times of the Emperor Kanmu.

鳴鐘山東勝寺 is called definitely. It is thought whether 新勝寺 occurs earlier speaking of Narita, but 新勝寺 is a meaning called the temple which is newer than 東勝寺, and this name is put.

Citizen of justice Sogo, Sakura biography

It will be about 360 years ago now in the times of general Ietsuna Tokugawa for early period of Edo era, four generations.

The village headmans of six Kiuchi Sogorou (Sogo, Sakura) and others reported the distress of the farmer in the Shogunate to save a bad crop and the farmers who shot, and followed who suffered from a severe heavy tax.

However, the complaint is not received, and Kiuchi Sogorou carries out the direct appeal to a forbidden general in those days.

The heavy tax that tormented farmers was reviewed, and the wish of villages was granted, but, in Sogorou being executed, even a family of Sogorou became a target and, by this direct appeal, was sentenced to punishment to young child and others on August 3, 1653 (Joo 2) (August 3 of the old calendar). It was right life-threatening direct appeal.

Then, 100 years later, the Sakura feudal clan repented of the misgovernment in 1752 (Horeki 2) and restored honor of Kiuchi Sogorou, and a posthumous Buddhist name (しごう) did the posthumous Buddhist name of "the Sogo way retired life person" and thereafter came to be called "Sogo".

As the temple where citizen of justice of the Edo era, Sogo Sakura is enshrined now, believers of the whole country come for worship.

Hydrangea garden

Various hydrangeas including Hydrangea macrophylla, the Hakuyou hydrangea are planted in the precincts spreading out in the Sogo Reido Sanctuary Daihondo Hall back including a convention hydrangea.

Hakuyou hydrangea is put on Sogo Reido Sanctuary more than 1,000 stocks and there are few places where only this is seen in with much Hakuyou hydrangeas and pleases the eyes of the tourist. I plant a tree little by little, and the hydrangea of 5,500 is planted now.

In 2002, the Kankuro Nakamura length (current Kanzaburo length) of the Kabuki actor performed hydrangea tree planting. This is a thing by "a citizen of Sakura justice biography" having been staged in commemoration of Sogo soul 350 anniversary in Kabuki-Za.

I have cooperation from local people, company, group everybody to let a beautiful hydrangea bloom, and a flowering sprout knob and the mowing of the hydrangea are performed.

In addition, the tip of the chip of wood by the Narita International Airport donation is spread in the hydrangea garden to enjoy a hydrangea comfortably on the rainy day.

Hydrangea Festival is performed every year in June.
※Out of concern of the further infection spread of the new coronavirus, relief, security was considered to having top priority, and cancellation of "the 2020 Sogo Reido Hydrangea Festival" was decided. Understanding would be appreciated your.
