Imamiya Shrine, Kyoto

4.1
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 .

  • 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.

  • Was visited for the first time to somehow familiar with going from the old shrine (deja vu? )。 Maybe from the gate, soothe the hearts of worshippers. It is derived from the more than 1000 years ago. Perhaps among the most famous shrines in the city has kept relatively quiet, even mundane distractions, feel very calm. 🐕 Tokugawa fifth Shogun - Duke of tsunayoshi, mother - Kei, with RIM, also known as Tama no Koshi Shinto shrine is also famous. Katsura, hospital born in Nishijin greengrocer to theory, third Shogun was stuffed with rise to tsunayoshi, to become a concubine of Ieyasu, after that, as the mother of the Shogun in ooku power sieve, with first place position from the etymology of "marry". Katsura, the lifelong hometown of Nishijin-ORI and so were doing many donors to imamiya shrine in the Deus Ex Machina. This shrine deified is "healthy ageing" + "good match good luck". I do not know whether or not she can ride the power spot is likely. ◇ good turn with the Daitoku-ji Temple. Delicacy "Daitokuji-natto" is recommended as a souvenir. -Examples of route 1 Subway Karasuma Line-Kitaoji bus stop. Use city bus that doubles as a bus station and imamiya-Jinja Mae. And the other is nearby.

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.
