Oharano-jinja Shrine (大原野神社)

A Shinto shrine located in Oharano, Nishikyo Ward founded in 784 by Empress Consort Fujiwara no Otomuro, originally of the Fujiwara clan, in Nagaoka-kyo to enshrine the patron gods of the Kasuga-taisha in Nara. The main shrine building standing today was constructed in 850, as were the Kasuga-zukuri style inner shrine and Koisawano-ike Pond modeled after Sarusawa-ike Pond. Today, the shrine is a widely renowned site for viewing fall foliage, with the approximately 200 meter long approach to the shrine becoming a deep red tunnel bustling with visitors during the season.

The actual building is a reconstruction of Edo Period, but the origin of this shrine remounts to the foundation of Nagaokakyo. So, it is a very old temple. As it is not easily accessible by public...

          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.
