Dendengu Shrine is dedicated to Kokuzo Bodhisattva's manifestation Myojo Tenshi, the true form of Denden-Myojin, the chief deity of Myojo-sha Shrine. It was burned down during the Kinmon Incident (also called Hamaguri Rebellion) on 1864 but was reconstructed in 1956. Every year on May 23 they hold the Grand Festival of Dendengu Shrine to pray for the growth of the electric industry and protection from accidents.

          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.
