  • 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.

  • Demolition is a shrine to Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Tokugawa Ieyasu, was rebuilt during the Meiji era. Torii is good, pull the 1 second was moved from Fushimi Castle opulence that is karamon. It is indeed a national treasure. I was surprised at the height of the traditional craft skills. EMA of the gourds and sandals was named after Hideyoshi.

  • 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 :)

  • 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!
