  • Kyoto setsubun Festival all sides went to the shrine. This is followed by Yoshida shrine and Yasaka Shrine, Mibu temple shrine. After the visitors had beans, took part. Was later, luckily, was 3. No per ticket. Bean then went into plum. We enter chirahora is still limited release date because of the long-awaited opportunity. Charges are applicable.

  • 北野天満宮是眾多天満宮的起源。當中的紅葉苑種有數百棵紅葉,秋季晚上會有亮燈。若最受歡迎的寺院都已經落葉或太多人,由御池烏丸乘坐的士前往北野天満宮也是一個選擇,大約2000日圓以內。 
  • Kitano tenmangu in Fukuoka after such multilateral discipline is home to the God of the place. So tourists are Japanese, but finding more foliage season are open to the garden for a fee once the yen. Kitano tenmangu in 25 days and monthly centered on the phrase flea market opens. They tend to be pretty big good watching the fun. Take a look at the one at a flea market schedule ~ fun.

  • This shrine is famous for its cherry trees and during the season, swarms of people go there and enjoy drinking and eating under the trees.
  • Must Visit diring Spring & Autumn Oct25-Dec6th
  • One of the most beautiful Shinto shrines we've seen across Kyoto.
  • It's supposed to help with your studies if you come here. Can't hurt, I guess.
  • Lovely temple complex with beautiful plum blossoms in early March.
