鎮神社

奈良井宿に疫病が流行り、これを鎮めるために千葉県香取神社から主神をまねき祭祀をはじめたとされています。
毎年8月11日・12日の両日には氏子総出による盛大な例祭がとりおこなわれます。

Shizume Shrine

Narai-juku’s village shrine. It was originally built on the Torii pass but burnt down due to a war and it is said to have been relocated to the current site by Yoshitaka Narai. An annual grand-scale festival is held on August 12, where young people in the town get together and march along to festival music with Japanese flutes, drums and shamisen throughout the town. (The festival is designated as the city’s intangible folklore cultural asset and the shrine’s main hall the city’s tangible folklore cultural asset.)
