Hirano-Jinja (平野神社)

A Shinto shrine located in Kita Ward, Kyoto City. The shrine is said to have been founded in 794 when a deity was moved here close to the palace in accordance with the relocation of the capital ordered by Emperor Kammu. The current main building was built in the Kan-ei period (1624–1644) according to the Hirano-zukuri style and is a nationally designated Important Cultural Property. The front shrine, central and southern gates, and auxiliary shrine are designated Cultural Properties by the Kyoto Prefectural government. The shrine is renowned for its cherry trees and holds a Cherry Blossom Festival on April 10 as well as a concert and reception with cherry blossom tea (fee required).

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
