About this app

NIKKO's starry sky app is an app that reproduces the starry sky of sunlight in real time.
Detailed information on stars, constellations, and planets can be obtained immediately by simply holding them in the air.
Since ancient times, people have recognized something in Nikko and the mountains of Ashio and headed for this place. One of them was probably Shodo Shonin, a priest of Kaisan in Nikko. Despite the harsh climate of food, people were particular about this area and built shrines and temples to serve as a sacred place for prayer and training. One scholar says that all the myths of various nations are stories of heaven and earth, in other words, the interaction between stars and humans. If so, people may have scattered stars in the land of sunlight leading to heaven.

◎ Orion and Nikko Shrines and Temples
Sannai, where the shrines and temples of Nikko, a World Heritage Site, are enshrined, was remodeled by Tokugawa's third shogun Iemitsu from 1634, but the head office of Nikko Futarasan Shrine (Nikko Futara) We carried out an unclear construction that moved Sanjinjahonsha) three steps north. However, the intention became apparent from the perspective of Orion. The most prominent and important stars in Orion are the two first magnitude stars and the three stars of Orion. The buildings corresponding to these are Hongu Shrine and Takio Shrine at the position of the first-class star, and Nikko Futarasan Shrine main shrine at the position of the central star of the "three stars". Kofuta Sanjinjahonden), then the two outer stars of the "three stars" are the Nikko Toshogu Okushahoto and Iemitsu Mausoleum. It is the tomb of Ieyasu and Iemitsu at the Iemitsu Byotai Yuin Okuin Hoto. The incomprehensible work may have been a tweak to a more perfect Orion.

So why is Orion? Do you know Kamudo? It is also said to be the door that connects the gate of God with the writing heaven and the earth. A shooting star is a sunbeam when God opens the door. By forming Orion in Sannai, where the shrines and temples of the World Heritage Nikko are enshrined, Nikko would have been a place of prayer for the Edo Shogunate.
