Kyoto Ryozen Gokoku jinja Shrine (京都霊山護国神社)

A Shinto shrine located in Higashiyama Ward, Kyoto City that was established to honor patriots who worked to promote the reformation at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate. The grounds contain tombstones and cenotaphs dedicated to figures such as Sakamoto Ryoma, Nakaoka Shintaro, and Kido Takayoshi, as well as a Showa Shrine Grove commemorating military service. The adjoining Ryozen Museum of History exhibits literature and other materials related to the Meiji Restoration. On November 15, the birthday of Sakamoto Ryoma, the Ryoma Festival is held to comfort souls who benefited from his efforts. A key autumn event in Kyoto, the festival attracts throngs of people.

Review of Kyoto Ryozen Gokoku Shrine

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2016/01/03 Place of Ryoma tomb
This is the place of Ryomas tomb. The tomb is quite small, but very interesting. Unless the other temples in Kyoto, this place is very quiet. You have a wonderful view over Kyoto.
Reviewed:2015/06/04 Worthwhile Place to Visit
It was a warm weekend day that we visited and it was very crowded with both visitors and locals alike. It covers a large area and if you have a guide it makes the visit easier and more interesting...
Reviewed:2014/11/22 Shrine to visit
There are many shrines in Kyoto and this one is also a good place to visit and admire the nature of japan art when creating shrines

          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.
