Shimogamo Shrine is one of the World Heritage Sites chosen by UNESCO. The shrine is surrounded by trees emitting fresh air to its surroundings making visitors feel very relaxed. The shrine is founded in the 6th century making it one of the oldest in Japan.
Many events are held in Shimogamo Shine such as Aoi Matsuri Festival which is regarded as one of the main three festivals in Kyoto. Meigetsu Kangensai Festival is taken place to adore the beautiful moonlight while enjoying the orchestra in the shrine garden. On the stage, court dance and music (free) and tea ceremony (￥800 for an advance ticket/ ￥1,000 for a day ticket) will be offered for guests. On the road to the entrance of Shimogamo Shrine, “Kagaribi Fair” will be held with about 20 long-established tea shops. Please enjoy the fine taste of Japanese desserts in this event!
