The Heian Jingu Shrine (Shinto)
A wide view of the shrine buildings and huge courtyard. This shrine was initially constructed in 1895 and rebuilt in 1940. Kyoto was the capital of Japan for over a thousand years.
There were two fountains for washing or purification before entering the shrine. This was the dragon one, the other was a bear.
The entrance gate from the inside looking out into the city of Kyoto.
The many-roofed shrine building.
