Iwashimizu Hachimangu石清水八幡宮

Event

Iwashimizu Hachimangu, a Shinto shrine, is considered one of Japan's top three Hachimangu shrines. In autumn, the entirety of Mt. Otoko, the mountain on which the shrine's grounds sprawl, is dyed yellow and crimson, and the view of this from the local cable car is beautiful. In most years the best time to enjoy the foliage is mid-November.

          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.
