  • Hiyoshi Taisha Shrine at the foot of Mt. Hiei's shrine of Hiyoshi of Japan 3000800 & HIE Sanno shrine. Motomiya is located within the East and West, each shrine of each designated national treasure buildings there. Also, 3000 of its shrines, known as Kansai's leading autumn attraction, visited many many visitors from outside the prefecture. Ushio shrine and Sannomiya Hachioji mountains towering behind the Hiyoshi Taisha okumiya, up the steep road climb about 30 minutes or so. I have spectacular reward and bears this out. Early in the morning I visited, the hot days, precinct was surrounded by quiet, awe inspiring atmosphere. Tourists are not early in the morning is recommended.

  • Sakamoto station is closer, there are two locations, they may walk out. Jr railway is convenient. Higashi-honganji Temple and Palace Nishimoto and Hiyoshi HIE mountain shrine in monkey seems to be closely related.

  • Probably the only shrine in Japan which charges for an entrance fee. But after 4:30 pm, it is free! :D Sometimes there is an art exhibition.
  • Grand Shrine makes it convenient since it is directly connected to Kyoto via Route 47. They only charge 300 yen for the entrance.
  • Quite a large religious complex, on Mt Hie, between Kyoto and Shiga . There are 3 famous stone bridges , temples..there is also a golden rock ( catches the sun at dawn ) at the top of the mountain ..I have never made it that far ...If you go past the main hall there is also a small river with a bridge and a soba restaurant overlooking a large waterfall...nice if you want to eat with the sound of rushing water ....
  • Inspector Farida table kimon ensconced in Mt. Hiei patron, Kyoto's venerable Shinto shrine. It is a shrine Sanno faith more than 3,000 across the country. Walk from Keihan Sakamoto, entered from the West Gate. 300 yen. Environment is fairly broad, so hurry and I think Nishimoto Palace can all have just as good, and you'd like to see better access. And God the monkey in the middle. Mikoshi's privately held usually in designated. In 2016, 11, and 12 year of the monkey festival only Ikki left the shrine. Please take a look at upstream Hak Hee near there in the middle of. It is delicious. Heard from a long time ago, monks of Enryaku-ji visited here is not met. Triangular Daishi good sources customers are walking from the Dharma temple near the West Gate of the rose.

  • Today, the Hiyoshi Taisha Shrine in Shiga Prefecture, came to visit. Older women sit and stand ago the Office on the South side, had been accepted. Appearance at that time, as she looked at the dictionary and a few seconds we close the page, give the face, or not and per person? The question after the brochure toss change 700 yen Palm lightly tossed, pass the. In this grade as a shrine and dignity you down. It is a pity that the ruthless. Incidentally through the opposite side accepting before and was put out something from women, but only content.
