This place is pretty unique for its horses. We missed a horse show when we came here, but they have horse shows on a specific day of the month. I forgot what day it is, so you will have to check it out. Besides that,...More
What an event to see in Golden week. It occurs on the 3rd of May every year at this shrine.
We caught the subway to karamguchi station from kyoto on the karasume line and walked the 1.5 kms through the small streets to the shrine....More
Along with the Kamigamo, this is one of the oldest shrines in the city. It abuts a natural forest and makes for some lovely quiet walks. It's also not on the tourist bus track so you'll enjoy peace and solitude.
This is a must-go if you are a fan of historical and cultural architecture. Apart from this, if you are superstitious, hoping that there would be good luck for your work, love life or health. This is a place for your inner peace and family...More
This is probably the most interesting shrine, if you go at the right time of year. Probably any festival - and we attended one in August - has some interesting traditions. You can walk through a river with a lit candle; ring a gong; watch...More

It is one of the famous shrine of Kyoto. Aoi Matsuri is so beautiful traditional festival on May, so please check the schedule ahead of time and then plan to visit there.

No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
