  • Hiyoshi Taisha Shrine is famous for fall foliage, summer is recommended. In the water from Mount Hiei is a small river, flows. The can is on a bridge over the river go down. I put in the water and cool breeze. But cannot swim so shallow. Nature in and around the shrine, so mosquito is required, however.

  • 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.
