Shimogamo Jinja, Kyoto

4.4
Take a relaxing walk on the lush, forested path to Shimogamo Jinja, an important Shinto place of worship and part of a World Heritage Site. Dating back to the 6th century, the Shinto sanctuary is known for the primeval wooded area that surrounds it. Enjoy the peaceful, spiritual atmosphere as you stroll among the tall trees, some more than 600 years old. Admire the brilliant red tori gates and mossy wooden buildings of the shrine, situated at the meeting point of two rivers and dedicated to the gods of harvest.

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.
