Classic shopping day in Teramachi
This shrine enshrines the god of learning, Sugawara no Michizane. The lines of lanterns of the shrine are an awe-inspiring sight when they appear in front of you walking down Shinkyogoku Shopping Street!
During the Heian period the author Sei Shonagona and the poet Izumi Shikibu were both said to have become nuns at this temple, and for this reason, you can get a goshuin stamp for your goshuincho “book of temple memento stamps” at Seigan-ji.
In the next part, you will find out what is hip and in at the moment at the shopping streets of Teramachi & Shinkyogoku! Many new shops and restaurants await, and I have some great places especially for women I would like to recommend!
