Kawai-jinja Shrine

Shrine
This Shinto shrine is dedicated to the guardian deity of women, Tamayori-Hime-no-Mikoto. From time immemorial it has been known as a place to govern female beauty and is a place to pray for beauty, safe delivery or marriage. The votive card with a face depicted on it has makeup applied from a makeup set on the front, and on the rear wishes and names are written. This so called “mirror votive card” is rare, and it is a popular shrine for female visitors.

  • Chomeis cabin

    Kawai Sheine is a small shrine near Shimogamo Shrine. Compared with the latter, this shrine is not impressive, but you can find here a reconstruction of Kamono Chomeis cabin.
  • Small and near shimo temple

    After seeing shimo temple. Its only 5 minutes walk difference not really worth visit. Selling different charm design. Which is ping pong bat style.

    巫女さんの態度が最悪でした。絵馬を買うのにも声も小さく無愛想で案内も何もなしでした。閉る15分前くらいに行ったのも悪いのですが何も貸してもらえず言った意味がなかったので2度と行きません
