  • Although I took a bus to Ginkakuji, I heard an announcement called "Kumano Jinja Shrine" and I went down for some reason. It's not a big shrine, but it's just around the corner from the bus stop, so you can see it right on the big street. The Kumano Shrine is eight company chops Crows. It is drawn in various places, but I like the company chops of the lantern is cute and random. Do I need to aim here? I think that it is good to stop in conjunction with Ginkakuji and Heian Jingu Shrine.

  • From a foreigner point of view, this is a small but pretty shrine. In a way it is overshadowed by the bigger shrines of Kyoto.
  • The founder of Shugendo in the second year of Hirohito (811), and the tenth monk of the role, said that the Sun-en was the one who tried to protect Kishu Kumano Okami for the national preservation. Enshrined will enshrines the life of Irizanagi Nami, Iizanagi, and Amaterasu Oogami, Fast tamman life, and the thing solution man. And the Kumano Wakoji Shrine and Shinkumano shrine are called Kyoto Mitsukumano, and we are said to be the oldest. Matchmaking, healthy longevity, and easy delivery is a god of faith. It is revived by the Seigoin-gu, Michihiro Hoshin, which was devastated by Kanbun 6 (1666). The main shrine is relocated the former main shrine of Shimogamo, in 1835. As a guardian of the Shogoin, it is revered as a guardian deity of the Tendai-Shu-ji Motoyama sect Shugendo. For a long time, it was called Shirakawa Kumano or Kumano Gondo, but since the Meiji Restoration, it has been renamed the current Kyoto Kumano shrine by gods separation. Each year, on February 2 and 3, at the time of the Setsubun festival, you can receive the hospitality of tea and sweets for visitors to the Shogoin-bashi and the worshippers next door. Every year in late June, the Chinowa is crowded with worshippers who perform exorcism in the summer. Transportation access is a short walk from the city bus Kumano shrine. Because there is no parking lot, please use 🚗 parking nearby. In addition, since the Kyoto University Medical School attached hospital is adjacent to the north side, before the examination, I recommend praying for your visit as a stronghold of the heart in sickness after the consultation by all means. I sincerely pray that there is a profit of a healthy longevity.
