  • Itsukushima Shrine is also known as "Benten-san of the Pond" sitting on the nakajima of Kujo Pond in Kyoto Gyoen. The three goddesses of munakata are the main festival gods. It is the beginning that Hirakiyomori enshrined the god of Itsukushima Shrine for mother Gion woman mi. There is a kara-futorii which changed for a moment in front of the shrine, and it seems to be one of Kyoto Sanshin torii. It was worth visiting just to see this torii.

  • There is Itsukushima Shrine in Kyoto Gyoen. It is just a few steps from Sakai-cho Mimon. It is a shrine on the banks of Kujo Pond. The torii of the stone is the one called the Tang Dynasty style torii, and it is one of Kyoto Sanrare torii. It was a severe impression.
