  • 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...

  • The roof and the fence are quite old, and I think the repair is necessary. Even from the origin, even though the relationship between the imperial palace was deep, there are few people who pilgrimage by not being known to tourists as maybe other shrines, and money is not gathered. From the Spirit Shrine (top), it is also a good idea to walk along the course of Aiji Temple, Imperial Palace, and the lower spirit shrine while getting the Red seal.

  • 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 )
