Seimei Shrine, Kyoto

3.8
Awaken your spiritual side as you stroll through peaceful surrounds dating back to 1007 CE at Seimei Shrine. As you make your entry to the second-century shrine, two tori gates greet you. The main gate features an engraved golden bellflower, which marks a turn away from Japanese tradition of engraving the shrine’s name, or that of its presiding deity, into the gateway. Walk around the complex grounds and find an old stone bridge, a well with healing powers, and a 300-year-old camphor tree. Go to the back of the complex to find the main shrine, where the presiding deity is worshipped.

  • Wider environment is not. There are splendid shrine official goods shop and Office. Hanyu-Kun also has relatively modest is the main shrine, was ready in the visits column. Beside the main charm peach a peach statue? And being patted on the worshippers, was shining shiny. Behind us the sacred tree? For like everyone is focused on hands, and camphor trees, touch and feel a bit strange to write and was impressed. EMA of entertainers and athletes were hung at the Office. In EMA Hanyu Med Bajwa players and former Akiko Suzuki. Many times coming in might not be that, Gen or something might come to the bearers.

  • It is a compact shrine Abe Seimei's former mansion site, plain city. But what to say in Hanyu result string effects, great it was crowded (I even tempted, I visited one is). Safety of EMA's ordinary shrine and pray for success, not the majority (8% of individuals) had been written contents of the Hanyu to involuntarily is a wry smile. But shrine symbol "!" mark is very cool and a nice cool sounds. Of course I bought Mark's amulet. Would you smile involuntarily. I think there is charm in this shrine.

  • I stopped by when travelling alone in March. Opening hours until 18:00 rather long, good. I think that has many smaller shrines should be. EMA Yuzuru Hanyu is famous for one thing. Not only Hanyu, EMA Med Ballew's Russia and Akiko Suzuki also was decorated. Weekdays 17:00 in the past had been flat, Olympics after the worshippers of. Is a place Abe Seimei fan, Yuzuru Hanyu fans, either.
