#106 of 351 in Historic Sites in Kyoto
Tadasu no Mori, which literally means "Forest of Correction," is a sacred grove associated with an important Shinto sanctuary complex known in Japanese as the Kamo-jinja, situated near the banks of the Kamo River just north of where the Takano River joins the Kamo River in northeast Kyoto city, Japan. The term Kamo-jinja in Japanese is a general reference to Shimogamo Shrine and Kamigamo Shrine, the traditionally linked Kamo shrines of Kyoto. The Kamo-jinja serve the function of protecting Kyoto from malign influences.The forest encompasses approximately 12.4 hectares, which are preserved as a national historical site (国の史跡). It is today the last remnant of a primeval forest which is reputed to have never been burned down. The forest has, in fact, suffered some damage over the centuries when all of Kyoto was burned during successive revolts and wars, but the forest growth has rebounded again and again. The forest is left to grow in its natural state. It is neither planted nor pruned.The forest in ancient times comprised approximately 4,950,000 square meters of virgin forest. Due to wars during the Middle Ages and an edict in the 4th year of the Meiji era, it was reduced to its present area of approximately 124,000 square meters.World Heritage siteThe wooded area that is called by the name Tadasu-no-mori today lies on the grounds of Shimogamo Shrine, one of the seventeen historical sites in and around Kyoto which in 1994 were designated by UNESCO as Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto.

  • This is an image of the Causeway leading to the shimogamo shrine. While I was still in the green of the trees is about 1 km away from the entrance to shrine, but is great for exploring. Mitarai River also flows to the side, it is very cool. Along the way many method, such as the famous Kawai shrine as a beautiful shrine in the woman's guardian angel. It is recommended that rather than taxis and suddenly go to the shimogamo shrine, go take a look at this tadasu no Mori walked.

  • Tadasu no Mori, query plan, and read. Tadasu no Mori's approach from Demachi-yanagi Station leading to the main shrine of the shimogamo shrine of a world heritage site. Followed by the road is surrounded by tall trees. In a solemn tone, is a space of healing. During the hot summer and the shade of the trees, it feels cool.

  • Tadasu no Mori, which literally means "Forest of Correction," is a sacred grove associated with an important Shinto sanctuary complex known in Japanese as the Kamo-jinja, situated near the banks of the Kamo River just north of where the Takano River joins the Kamo River in northeast Kyoto. The deep green of this forest provides a great sense of tranquility. This long stretch of path in the forest is much favored by the locals of this area. You may want to stroll around the nature with stram running through all the way. Especially early in the morning when the sun light leaking through the shade of leaves called " komorebi " is something spectacular. one of the greatest spots to stay cool in the heat of summer season. You might also be able to see hotaru ( fireflies ) in early June. ( Trans-word+ : TGM Kyoto )
  • Very beautiful place especially during autumn
  • Forest has been protected as the shrine stands the shimogamo shrine (shimogamo shrine). From the north side of the confluence of the Kamo River and Takano River kamogawa Delta extends to the shimogamo shrine. While steadily approach the Kawai shrine is located to the South. There is a park located in Kyoto City image, here is a forest. Bush remains in plain looking for Japan domestic throughout the country should be a bit. Rare vegetation. I think this alone world heritage class. It is of Yakushima Island, a 3-minute walk from Kyoto City Centre, train station, 10 minute walk from the bus stop from and. Vegetation of the four seasons can be enjoyed and if you're lucky, you can encounter animals such as raccoons.

  • 很寧靜、美好的地方 風拂過樹木沙沙的聲音 伴隨烏鴉叫,好像來到另一個世界 如此貼近神明,很安心的感覺 從下鴨神社不知不覺走的河合神社,再走到森林 出了森林走至葵橋 多麼美的地方呀

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.
