  • Kyoto train station underpass came to shichijo Avenue, to the ground. Snap right back from Kyoto station, walk to just straight up. And slightly uphill to clear out in the region, including 33 across the Hall and Kyoto National Museum. There turn left and walk a little bit arrives at the toyokuni shrine. The weather is nice, we recommend walking.... And shrine of Toyotomi Hideyoshi's enshrined in the dignity, was very good.

  • Kyoto National Museum next door. After viewing the special exhibition in Kyoto, then stopped. Gorgeous gorgeous gate was decorated in gold finery too, would match the surrounding landscape.

  • Kampaku Futoshi politics Minister awarded positive than the place where Toyotomi Hideyoshi publicly after positive natennou positive was given the first toyokuni Daming God of God, worshipped as the Lord. Last farewell personally, I love that. Follow the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto, from page 2 of the stamp book. Maybe is not so popular in Kyoto!? ︎ however, while coincidentally encountered Shinto ceremony. Near the historical treasures Museum artifacts are on display, I felt that hachibiraki at that time. Put the Vermillion book is available at. "Paulownia Crest" and gourd contains firm and as soon as I'm happy. Hanging votive, given by worshippers.

  • 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 )
  • Not the best, but still a Beautiful temple :)
  • Good.
  • Clean. Free. What do you need anymore?
  • Underdrawing was speaking of nokyo-sho 2016 / 8 / 15 received shrine Shinto shrine name Red Seal is a classic, but I wasn't here. "Nanshan, ratio" is written "Fu's East. Meaning "long life and happiness are both Immortals like many he" with it. On this day, as usual also nokyo-sho Kyoto swords for a limited time! 直shi naginata sword bone Eater Kato Shiro, purple, beautiful paper dictionary. Naginata 直shi sword is again shine which was originally a halberd (naginata), wakizashi and meaning. "Bone Eater Kato Shiro (hit by Fuji as an amateur)" the swords name acquired at the toyokuni shrine of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Designated nationally famous (one that excels in Japanese sword). Awataguchi Yoshimitsu made. Thank you for your rare nokyo-sho!
