  • I found a red ball fence when I visited The Sendo, so I stopped by. It is said that it noticed the weakness of my mind and it stopped though the sword goer Miyamoto Musashi tries to pray for the victory here before the duel with Yoshioka Ichimon. I don't say it's big, but the precincts were beautifully organized. There is also a statue of Miyamoto Musashi.

  • The Eight Shrines also had the Miyamoto Musashi statue, and i thought that the festival god was Miyamoto Musashi, but the festival gods were "The Life of The People", "Inada Himelife", and "Hachioji Life". There was a fortune lottery, too, and a small golden lucky charm was in case of 200 yen lottery.

  • Free to visit and has toilet.
  • Hachidai Shrine 八大神社 Next to Shisendo is Hachidai Shrine where Miyamoto Musashi had a big battle with a great samurai. Just go up the hill toward east is Tanukidani Fudo-in Temple. Going down the slope you will come to a place called Ichijyoji Kudari Matsu which is a place where Musashi made an arrangement of this battle under a pine tree. ( Kudari = go down + Matsu = pine tree ). Read this page for the detail. ( TGM Kyoto Guide ) 八大神社は、京都市左京区一乗寺松原町にある神社。毎年5月4日に例大祭が行われる。狸谷山不動院から一乗寺下り松・曼殊院道に至る途中にあり、詩仙堂に隣接する。 ウィキペディア
