Heian Shrine, Kyoto

The Shinto Heian Shrine was built in 1895 to commemorate the 1100th anniversary of Heian-kyo (Kyoto).

The Shinto Heian Shrine was built in 1895 to commemorate the 1100th anniversary of Heian-kyo (Kyoto). Designed as a scaled-down (5/8) replica of the original Imperial Palace, the shrine honors Emperor Kammu who founded Kyoto in 794, and Emperor Komei who was the last Japanese ruler to have his capital at Kyoto. The bright vermilion torii gate of the Heian Shrine is the one of the largest in Japan, and the Shin'en Garden encircling the backside of the shrine is one of the city's most beautiful gardens and a popular place for hanami, particularly for those who prefer pink blossoms.
