Imamiya Shrine, Kyoto

Pray for good health and luck at Imamiya Shrine, a Shinto shrine complex set in a lush forest. Walk along a bamboo-lined trail until you reach the entrace, which meets the eye with an intense mix of colors. A calm atmosphere and numerous smaller shrines make it possible to feel the essence of Shintoism at the complex, which hosts numerous festivals throughout the year. Children can perform rituals, such as ringing a bell or lifting a stone to appease the petrels, while you appreciate the architecture, which features elaborate wooden ceilings above red lanterns, as well as an elegant carving of a catfish. Check out the old teashouse, which has stood since the end of the 10th century. Arrange to visit Imamiya Shrine and other attractions in Kyoto using our Kyoto visit planner .

  • It is a place tucked away in the outskirts of Kyoto, Tama no Koshi shrine. Do not go to the booth and not tourist attractions on foot walking around I think. Thought it was funny that lift the stone or light or if things divine you feel or wish come true. Still shrines and temples, guide, I thought with us like that.

  • A very quite shrine
  • Make sure you give yourself at least an hour here to walk around. If you're short on time, head straight up, about mid-way, to take the mandatory picture of the abundance of red archways.
