  •  This year approached the setsubun 2/3. Total clearing of Yoshida shrine scattered all over the country, bean-throwing Festival is an important event of this shrine is here Yoshida shrine. Attention is not a Oni infested the located halfway up Mt. Yoshida shrine. In setsubun with opening many stores and stalls, and other vendors.  Their presence is growing. It was the same until around 1970, with setsubun ordered stores and stalls.  But store column in red shrine gate area, please feel was somewhat. Also say the shrine here is the street front gate of Kyoto University.  And the season of spring, at the University are bizarre juxtapositions in the middle of an important final exam (even now, it has not changed should be) in. I went from tens of years, the u-turn in the Kansai region, went to Tokyo to work us out of the University column on the opening of the front gate of the University, had grown up near its destination higashioji. However Pierce higashioji stalls Amoeba if last February, once again go out and reaches the other side of the street, now stretches North to South along the road.  Simple version retailers fertility is that amazing energy. Keep going with Kyoto University main campus is opened during the setsubun-stall herds around. and will not end up with sycophants.  Near hyakumanben intersection also fall day is so close. Not that embarrassed University officials. No more troubled students; After the final exam during the exam to stroll around the shrine.  Say it's romantic goal every year, half interest in stores and street vendors around. As the University OB students, advice one--won't stall hopping become absorbed with "Yu" let alone not even "good" will be. Does not anyone hear later, and 言iwake thanks to the setsubun bad grades, too.

  • Of the 3 ~ 5 February there's in the shrine (Setsu-bun) Festival. Setsu-bun = the spring welcome. On and around the temple grounds, red tents are built up, where you can buy food or souvenirs. There is also a raffle 1 lot is 200 yen. If you're lucky, you can win by a sake bottle up to a car. In the evening type (red, black, green) called three Demonenfiguren (ONI) a small ritual dance. Also, a fire is lit in the evening and the Talismaner purchased from the last year are burned. Because the shrine is located on a small hillside you can walk a little. On the mountain, there is a small cozy Café.

Is located in sakyo-Ku, Kyoto East yoshidayama Shinto shrine It was founded in 859 by the Fujiwara clan.    By the Fujiwara clan founded in 859 The at the shrine became the object of Imperial patronage during the early Heian period.   The shrine's had become a subject of Imperial patronage during the early Heian period In 965 Emperor Murakami ordered that Imperial messengers were sent to report important events to the guardian kami of Japan. From 1871 through 1946 ordered to report events important communicators of Imperial Japan's "God" send in 965, Emperor Murakami, the Yoshida at the Shrine was officially designated as one of the second rank of shrines supported by the government.  Yoshida Kanetomo was referred to as publicly as a shrine of the rank of the second one from the top is supported by the Government, founder of Yoshida Shinto, is buried here.   Yoshida Yoshida Shinto founder and Kenko Yoshida kanetomo are buried here, is a famous literary man in Japan and an author of a collection of essays, "Tsurezure gusa."   Yoshida kenkō is the author of tsurezuregusa in Japan a famous literary person Most Japanese read from his book in our Japanese language class in junior high school. Most of Japanese junior high school read from his work in English class, you'll learn So we have taken this literature as the most historical literature from when we are children. That's why we think as most historical literature ever since childhood He was born at the end of the Kamakura era.  However, we will continue to cherish his writing throughout the ages. Will be going in mind to his work (during the era of multiple = what for generations) Kenko Yoshida and family was closely connected to this at the shrine. First, this at the Shrine is famous for driving away evil spirits. It is said the first at the shrine of driving away evil spirits is here. Takemikazuchi are said to ward off evil where the first shrine, Iainushi, Amenokoyane, and a god of Hime are the main Gods at Yoshida at the Shrine. Since Kyoto was the capital of Japan a long time ago, the people of the past thought they had to protect their city, and then they made Yoshida at the Shrine on this mountain. Yoshida shrine built on this mountain, old Kyoto was Japan's capital for old people don't defend the city and think There is one main shrine, Hongu, and ten other shrines in Yoshida at the Shrine.

  • Go to the back of the main gate of Kyoto University and Torii, and to go further, it passes under the grand staircase. If you get it arrives at the Yoshida shrine. Winter is probably Kyoto setsubun Festival held in the famous.
