Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

Kamo, GUI chuan, Ujigawa three rivers suitable for Kyoto, injected under the basin, so Kyoto underground contains a huge basin of water, many of the street names in the city, as Kawabata pass, Imadegawa pass, clear water road, and "water". And when it comes to "water" on behalf of, first of all is the thought this area in Northern Kyoto. Both Mitarai of the shimogamo shrine offerings, two Hamochi Aoi Matsuri of the shrine of Kyoto, one of the three priests, and is dedicated to the patron saint of nymphs kifune shrine, and "water" related to this element. YEUNG Sum of the JIU Gao Yechuan Confluence Delta and He Maochuan, plenty of natural water and moist, still retains the 8th century when the original forest and wetland scene--before you moved the capital to Heian Kyoto basin is such a pristine forested wetland.

  • 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 )

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.
