  • A little up there, "Shirakawa Emperor Ryo" he! It is the tomb of Emperor Shirakawa of the 72nd Emperor. The place is located on the side road of The Second Keihan Road, but it is east of Jonangu. Born as the first prince of Emperor Gosanjo, he ascended to the throne at the age of 20, and his reign is 14 years, and after The Empress is a place to live in Toba Imperial Palace. It is also convinced that there is a tomb here. The regrettable thing is that the front of The Tomb is because there are a lot of passes on the national road. Didn't it become a quieter place?

  • There are many houses in and around the street very close to the highway. Because it grows a big tree behind it not as seen from outside the mausoleum and felt no attractions and the like. The location and think it was such a strange relationship with Taira no Kiyomori, keeping the power just on "retired" long Emperor's mausoleum attracted history buffs.
