    There are confusingly similar signs of eight shrine parking lot near the shrine, Torii the back from the front of the advancement Office behind outside parking space (2-3 minutes). This is the place (enlightened) spoil my thought here is Miyamoto Musashi attempts to pray, but relied on God. "We are gods and the gods and 恃mazu" revere the gods, but 恃mi is not. Because (at that time was Shintoism and Buddhism with cult)

    Is a Shinto shrine located from Ichijo-ji Temple down pine that Miyamoto Musashi dueled with the Yoshioka clan and climbed up the Hill. It is easy to understand because there is Torii in slope marks.

    From Yukari Miyamoto Musashi shrine Ichijo-ji Temple down pine trees go up mountains on foot. Uphill, there is a Torii. High place, so good vantage point.

    Hachidai Shrine 八大神社 Next to Shisendo is Hachidai Shrine where Miyamoto Musashi had a big battle with a great samurai. Just go up the hill toward east is Tanukidani Fudo-in Temple. Going down the slope you will come to a place called Ichijyoji Kudari Matsu which is a place where Musashi made an arrangement of this battle under a pine tree. ( Kudari = go down + Matsu = pine tree ). Read this page for the detail. ( TGM Kyoto Guide ) 八大神社は、京都市左京区一乗寺松原町にある神社。毎年5月4日に例大祭が行われる。狸谷山不動院から一乗寺下り松・曼殊院道に至る途中にあり、詩仙堂に隣接する。 ウィキペディア

    While walking in Ichijoji, Kyoto, I came across this famous swordsman, Miyamoto Musashi! Miyamoto Musashi is one of Japan’s most iconic and legendary swordsmen, not to mention one of the best. Musashi fought with two swords in the way of the Ni-ten Ichi Ryu, and he was also famous for throwing his swords and sometimes even shuriken. He was the author of The Book of Five Rings, and in his lifetime from the time he was thirteen, fought 60 duels undefeated, not taking into account the men he took down during wars or battles. Musashi adopted three sons and died in his sixties of natural causes, kneeling with his sword in his left hand, a cane in his right.

    Shrine dedicated to the Minamoto Musashi, which here should have at the same time fought against many enemies and won. He was supported at the victory from a tree, which he could have as protection in the back, so that no one could attack him from behind. The lower part of the stem is still so, and is venerated at the shrine.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
