  • There are many temples held in December, but this is January. It is 1000 yen by the radish firing and the Mamoru. It was a charm of 600 yen for today's limited. It was a little sweet, and the radish which I cooked had plenty. It is thick fried. The daikon radish was melts and delicious when it entered the mouth. Today, I'm lucky to be able to visit the Emperor Shirakawa's wooden house for free! The people who were blessed with the good weather came from next!

  • It is the place where the end of Heian-Kyo and Joko Shirakawa led the national affairs at the Temple of Law. Joko himself, while being ridiculed as "the first great tengu of the country," in the Genyoritomo public, the feud between the brother Takanori Joko, the Feuguage and the Fukiyomori public, Kiso Yoshitaka and Yoritomo, Yoshitsune, etc. is a human-smelly person who survived and lived in the era of conflict. The Mausoleum of Joko Shirakawa is on the north side of this temple.

  • Right opposite to Sanjusangendo, a small temple with pretty gardening and some lotus.
  • Right next to Sanjusangendo, free, beautiful, another temple yes but not a waste of time in my point of view :)
