The area
Address
Neighborhood: City Center
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.

3回目ですが、いつも独特の形状の山門に魅せられる寺院です。真っ白で遠くからもすぐに解ります。ここは観光寺ではないと思われるが拝観、観光にも十分耐えられる立派な寺院だと思います。本日は壬生寺へ徒歩で行く途中に少し遠回りして参拝しました。

一度、前に参拝させて頂いたこともある寺院です。今回もやはりひと際目立つ山門が素晴らしい寺院です。左京区の小千谷にある阿弥陀寺と全く同じような素晴らしい山門です。説明よりも投稿写真で確認して下さい。一見の価値はあります。

松原通りを散策中、竜宮門が特徴的なお寺と出会いました。ただ説明書もなく門も閉まっていたのですぐに通りすぎました。
