The visit to the shrine is free, and visiting the shrine behind the temple requires tickets.
Come to the shrine of the shrine, and the buildings in front of the temple are the Great Hall, the White Tiger House, the Canglong Building, etc. The red column and the Biwa are beautiful and atmospheric, while the ground is a large white sandstone, setting off the shrine. Be pure and innocent.
There are several small arches under the cherry trees in the courtyard, with the wishing cards written by the people who prayed for it. There is also a place to sign the gods. It is said that if you get a bad sign, tie it here and you can take refuge.
The south side of the shrine is a shrine road, where you can see a huge vermilion bird house, very spectacular and eye-catching. I was attracted by this elegant cherry tree, stopped and gave up to the torii. Perhaps it is more attractive to me than the grandeur.
If you want to choose the most magnificent building in Kyoto, I think it should be the Heian Shrine.

On the way to the Heian Jingu Shrine, and the chartered driver lamented the good fortune of this time, it is clear that the cherry blossoms that were only opened in Kyoto in mid-April every year, just hit the warm spring early this year and broke the record for more than 10 days. Great sunny day.

Attracting me is the introduction of the Kyoto Sightseeing Online, saying that the number of sakura sakura is full. The weeping cherry is a species that I like very much. It looks like a willow tree. The branches are made of multiple petal colors, pink and purple cherry blossoms, which are more beautiful than the white-colored Yoshino cherry.
Jingjing Shrine visit is free, but the back garden shrine needs 600 yen for the entrance ticket, my favorite weeping cherry is there, and quickly queue up to buy tickets.
Because the Shenyuan wants tickets, the flow of people is slightly less than that of the outside shrine. The eyes are all my sakura, and I am so excited that my mother thinks that I am crazy. Shenyuan is a pool-spring-style courtyard, meaning that all the attractions are built around Baihuchi, Canglongchi and Qifengchi. Tourists need to walk along the pool to watch the scenery and the flowers blooming in the four seasons.
