Shimogoryo Shrine, Kyoto
Shimogoryo Shrine Reviews
寺町通りにある下御霊神社に参りました、朱の鳥居が印象的です。 本殿は仮皇居の内侍所（賢所）を、表門は仮御所の建礼門をそれぞれ移築とあります。 趣のある立派な建物ですね。 境内からは御香水が湧き出ています、京都御所(御苑)の地下水だそうです。 柔らかい味わいで美味、ペットボトル持参で汲みに来られる方もいます。 more »I came to Shimoshu Jinja Shrine on Teramachi Street, and the torii of the vermilion is impressive. The main hall is the imperial palace's samurai office and the front gate is the rebuilding gate of the temporary imperial palace, respectively. It is a quaint and splendid building. It seems to be groundwater of Kyoto Imperial Palace (Gyoen) where perfume springs out from the precincts. Some people come to draw with their own pet bottles.
ここは何でもう少し境内全体を綺麗に、整然としておけないのか？いつ参拝しても雑然としていて・・・あちこちがテントだらけで・・・期間を決めるとかしてもう少し整理して参拝者を迎える体制を整えるべきと感じる。今回だけじゃなくて最近、数十回、毎回、そう思う。南側のボロボロの塀はようやく一定の修復はしたみたいですが・・・それにしても常に上の御霊神社と比べられる神社だが・・。大違い・・・。 more »Why can't we keep the whole precinct clean and orderly? I feel that it should arrange the system to greet the worshipers by arranging a little more in the time to decide the period and here and there in the tent. Not only this time, recently, dozens of times every time, I think so. The tattered wall on the south side seems to have finally fixed a constant restoration, but it is a shrine that is always compared to the above-mentioned spirit Shrine. A big difference...
Kosui ( Shimogoryo Shrine ) 下御霊神社の香水 Just a little south of Nashinoki Shrine on Teramachi street is Shimogoryo Shrine. Located very close to the south / east corner of Teramachi / Marutamachi intersection. its Chozu-sha is equipped with a special motor just like Nashinoki shrine for the visitors to fill their bottles quickly but this one is super powerful that fills up 20 litters in a minute or two.The quality of the water is almost just as great as Water of Somei. There is a cozy sitting space near the front gate so you might want to enjoy yor freshly filled bottle to take a refreshing break in the sacred atmosphere. The shrine precinct is looking very classic with many ancient structures. if you are lucky you may come across Massy around 6:00 a.m. filling his 20 litter water tank. Please say hello and give your opinion. I am probably more friendly than you may expect so don't hesitate! ( Trans-word+ : TGM Kyoto Guide )
