  • ** Kurumazaki Shrine 車折神社 Kurumazaki Shrine is located in the east side of Arashiyama. The shrine has 2 entances on north and south. Its historical background has a strong connection with imperial family of Heian Period. The origin of its name came from a certain history Arashiyama. That's when the Emperor Gosaga came to Ooi River of Arashiyama to play, the perch of the cow carriage was broken in front of this shrine. In Japanese ( carriage = Kuruma 車 + Break = Saki which writes 折 ). The shrine has several subshrines. One of which is Geino-jinja shrine for example can help people in the entertainment business. This is why celebrities go to this shrine to worship for their business prosperities in secret and those bright red fences called 'Tamagaki' are written with names of famous entertainers visited this shrine.The shrine is often crowded by visitors coming to look for famous names and take souvenir photos. ** August 15th Manto Festival 万灯祭 Mantou Festival ( Manto-sai ) is an event held in mid-Augusrt during Obon season. Those hundreds of colorful lanterns lit represent the spirits of deseased being sent back to another world. This is quite common practice of the season. 万灯祭(まんとうさい)は全国の参拝者・崇敬者が奉納された三面からなる紙灯篭に点灯し、 奉納された皆様の様々な願い事の成就を祈念する神事です。 ( Trans-word+ : TGM Kyoto Guide )

  • Cars fold shrine is a little hard to go by car. Astray, into alleys and narrow, and have a hard time. It is recommended to train or bus. People were more likely to visit to pray for the improvement of art and practice a wood deck and lined with the tree tag there pretty pretty famous people. It is interesting to make sure those who have any time. The precinct will delight the eyes and cherry.
