  • Ever unmarked this toyokuni Shrine at the wedding, I was surprised. In temples 3 gate one is pleasant. More amazing is the huge stones of the stone fort here (not to say stone). Often carried a group of these stone the look you want.

  • A shrine dedicated to Hideyoshi Toyotomi, who started out as a lowly assistant and ended up as the reunifier of Japan and its most powerful ruler at the time. It's nothing to go out of your way for, but might as well stop by if you're in the area. Good views to the west and you can get a strap with little golden sandals to wish for promotion or advancement.
  • Toyokuni Shrine is a Shinto shrine located in Higashiyama-ku. It was built in 1599 to commemorate Toyotomi Hideyoshi who was one of the 3 greatest unifiers of Warring States Period of Japan. It is the location of the first tamaya ( a Shinto altar for ancestor worship ) ever constructed, which was later destroyed by the Tokugawa clan to forbid the worship of Toyotomi. This shrine is the official tomb and shrine of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who died in 1598 in Kyoto. Nobles, priests, warriors, and townspeople gathered at the shrine to celebrate the anniversary of Hideyoshi's apotheosis 神として祀ること with banquets, musical recitals, and boisterous festivity. The shrine was closed by Tokugawa Ieyasu in June 1615 "to discourage these unseemly displays of loyalty to a man he had eclipsed." The Meiji Emperor directed that the shrine be restored in 1868. In 1897, the tercentenary 300年記念 of Hideyoshi was celebrated at this site. ( Trans-word+ TGM )

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.
