Hachiman Shrines in the Edo period
八幡宮 Hachiman Gu, 八幡神社 Hachiman Jinja 八幡社 Hachiman no Yashiro / Hachiman Sha

The Warrior Deity Hachiman 八幡神, deification of Emperor Oojin 応神天皇 Ojin,
is quite popular in Japan and there are many shrines in his name.
Another reading of the Chinese characters is YAHATA or YAWATA.

Setagaya Hachimangū 世田谷 八幡宮 Setagaya Hachimangu


Painted by Hasegawa Settan 1834-1836

Setagaya Hachimangū Shrine is said to have originated when Minamoto no Yoshiie called upon Usa Hachimangū Shrine in Buzen-no-Kuni (now Fukuoka Prefecture) to express gratitude for the successful subjugation of Ōshū. After Tokugawa Ieyasu opened the shogunate government, the shrine received a shogunal charter and became a tutelary shrine of Setagaya village.

Sailing under the mitsudomoe: Eastern pirates and their worship of Hachiman
Bernhard Scheid (Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna)

In the medieval period, an international network of pirates affected the sea trade between China, Korea, Japan, and the Ryūkyū Islands and even raided the coasts of these countries quite frequently. Although they were known in China as wokou 倭寇 (“Japanese bandits,” Jp. wakō), it is clear from various sources that their ethnic composition was quite diverse and changed over time, including more and more people of Chinese origin. The question of wakō ethnicity has therefore become a focus of recent wakō scholarship. Less attention has been given to the fact that the wakō were obviously devout worshippers of Hachiman, or at least put the name of Hachiman Daibosatsu or his symbols, such as the mitsudomoe (a ring consisting of three interwoven comma shapes), on the flags or sails of their ships.
This seems to be related not only to the Hachiman cult of contemporary warrior houses in Japan, but also to Hachiman worship at the Ryūkyū court. In my paper, I will shed more light on the reasons for this predilection of Hachiman among seafaring outlaws.

橋本八幡宮の神紋は「右三つ巴」。
綿津見神社の神紋も「右三つ巴」。右三つ巴は宇美八幡宮と織幡神社の神紋と同じ。

Fukuoka, Hashimoto 福岡市西区橋本

. mitsudomoe 三つ巴 threefold Tomoe .
... The crest of Hachiman is in the design of a mitsudomoe, a round whirlpool or vortex with three heads swirling right or left.
... the threefold division (Man, Earth, and Sky) at the heart of the Shinto religion.
Originally, it was associated with the Shinto war deity Hachiman, and through that was adopted by the samurai as their traditional symbol.

Once on the day of the Shrine festival, a mother came with her child of about 3 years. When she wanted to pass over the bridge, the child suddenly begun to cry, so she stopped without crossing and the child stopped crying soon.
A short while later the bridge collapsed and about 1000 people were injured.
The mother felt it was the help of the Deities that saved her life.
