Jonan-gu Shrine城南宮

4.5

Shrine

A Shinto shrine in Fushimi Ward, Kyoto City known as Katayoke no taisha (the Direction Warding Shrine). Emperor Shirakawa had a grand villa built here in the Heian period after his retirement, making the area into a political and cultural center. Rites were conducted here to pray for the emperor’s safety when he traveled to visit the temples of Kumano and the temple is still strongly popular among the faithful today for providing divine aid with construction, manufacturing, moving to a new location, traveling, and traffic safety. Visitors can enjoy seasonal flowers in the temple’s spacious garden. The temple holds Kyokusui no utage (Meandering Stream Banquets) in spring and autumn, events which are famed as displays of imperial elegance.

Jonangu Shrine is ancient, but its gardens date from the 1960s. Don’t let that put you off! They are definitely worth a visit. There are five separate gardens, each with a distinct character of its...

          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.
