A trip to Kyoto, there is an attraction not to be missed, that is, the Yasaka Shrine, which is close to the park. The Yasu Shrines annual garden festival is one of Japans three major festivals. The main sacrifices include the sacred sacred gods, the rice field martyrdom, and the eight-column prince.
It is one of the most famous and oldest shrines in the Kansai region of Japan. It used to be a place where gods and Buddhas are united. The
shrine hall is called "the garden only" and is a unique shrine building in Japan. It is an important cultural heritage designated by Japan.

Maple Season The most important thing to come to Kyoto is to experience the kimono!
Stayed in Japan for many years. In fact, the yukata is worn every year, but wearing the kimono for the first time is the late autumn maple leaf. The tour was about to be near the Yasaka Shrine. I thought about the red shop tekuteku. I thought about the absence of their branch near the Yasaka Shrine. I was close to Okamoto Kimono, and it was 30 seconds at the entrance of the Yasaka Shrine.
It turned out to be much easier. The whole process was not run very far, the photographer's film rate was extremely high, and I was very happy to have fun. h
Okamoto kimono shop is a veteran, and the Yasaka Shrine shop opened soon, renovation Very stylish, the wood is very windy and there is a tatami lounge. Kyoto Kimono is generally much more expensive than Tokyo. I have spent 7,000 yen on an umbrella (the average Tokyo price is around 3,500 yen, and the good looks are comparable)
There are three grades in their kimono category. The most affordable price is about 4,000 yen, but basically the plain color can't pick anything out. The middle gear can't pick anything in the circle, so go straight to 6000.
Yasaka Shrine, full of cherry blossom trees, the Japanese ushered in the most romantic time of the year
cherry blossom season, specially flew to Kyoto to see cherry blossoms, but currently the cherry blossoms in Kyoto only opened 50%, visual inspection of the holiday in Kyoto The cherry blossoms will be ushered in. However, the cherry blossoms in Kyoto are relatively early, and the Yasaka Shrine is one of them. At present, the cherry blossoms of the Yasaka Shrine have ushered in the heyday of Sakura Blowing Snow.
Hachiman Shrine is located in the only garden, very close to the Kiyomizu-dera Temple. It is the total body of about 3,000 Yasaka Shrines in Japan, and the nickname is only the garden, and it is free to visit. During the cherry blossom season, the Yasaka Shrine is not only daytime but also lively at night. There are many food stalls that are not available on weekdays, just like temple fairs. It is especially praised that there are many tables and chairs placed under the blooming cherry trees. You can order some side dishes, beer, sake and the like. The price is not expensive, but each person needs to pay 500 yen for the seat fee.
Many local Japanese people are traveling together, sitting and chatting under the cherry tree, and there are cherry blossom petals falling from time to time. The scene is very beautiful and romantic.
If you come to Kyoto during the cherry blossom season, don't miss the night view of Yasaka Shrine, see the night cherry, and experience the feeling of sitting under the cherry tree.
Entering from the South Gate, passing through the Stone Bird House, the Shenmen Gate, the first thing to see is the Kagura Hall (Dance Hall) with layers of lanterns hanging. The main entrance of the temple was closed at that time. The people who visited the temple were squatting and coin-operating in front of the building. I dont know if the gate will be opened during major festivals. This is very different from the fact that the domestic Buddhist temple is open to meet the good men and women. The Japanese people who visited the priests were very meticulous and consistently rigorous in their kimonos and modern costumes. In front of the Kagura Palace, there is a "Little Pond Home & Miyamoto-Married Style". The people in the temple who have white and red matching traditional dresses rehearse. It seems that there is a happy event to do today. The original Sacred Shrines main sacrifice is " The man who must be accompanied by his wife and his wife, "The name of the gods," is the god of marriage and marriage. It is also very appropriate to pray for a good marriage here!
Hachiman Shrine can also pay homage at night, and the quiet time seems to be able to feel the gods' visual observations on the human world~ Under the shadow of the white lanterns, the people in the daytime come back and forth, only to be true and illusory~
Located in the Higashiyama scenic area of Kyoto and commonly called Gion Shrine, Yasaka Shrine is the most important Shinto shrine of the approximately 3,000 sub-shrines throughout Japan. The rather unique mikoshi (divine palanquin) within allows visitors the chance to pray to the God of Beauty. The shrine's ritual activity is known as the Gion Festival (Gion Matsuri), which is one of the three great Shinto festivals of Japan, together with the Kanda Festival (Kanda Matsuri) in Tokyo and the Tenjin Festival (Tenjin Matsuri) in Osaka. Yasaka Shrine is also a popular hanami (cherry blossom viewing) site in spring.
