  • It is a region that flourished as the entrance of Kyoto from ancient times. Also respects, you seem to have a profit to pray for the safety of your trip enshrines your life. There is a fine staircase when you climb, and you can see the scenery from the hill if you climb it. I do not know whether it is for enshrined Sesha, but it is interesting that EMA is shaped like a sword.

  • My favourite shrine in japan, despite the steps
  • It seems to have been revered as a guardian God of the safety of the travel from ancient times facing Awtaguchi that the Tokaido passes. There is a book which writes that the east and West road of Awada Shrine is the former Tokaido Road, but the street along the current Sanjo Dori is exactly the same as the map of the Edo period, And, because the road which seems to be the east and West road of two birds is drawn on the line south of the Tokaido as a road leading to the temple of Foshan, I think that the tokaido that the Edo shogunate maintained at least was now Sanjo Dori. In any case, on top of the stone steps, there is a quiet and pleasant precincts with an open view.
