Kifune Shrine, an inner parlor of Kyoto, surrounded by about 3,000 green maple trees

Kifune Shrine, located in Kifune, an inner parlor of Kyoto, has enshrined the god of water since ancient times, and is also known as a shrine for marriage. Every year, from mid-April to mid-May, the grounds are covered with about 3,000 green maple trees, making it a famous spot for fresh greenery. The Kibune Kawadoko festival begins in May, and every year the entire Kibune area is bustling with people.

In the seasonal illumination of the fresh greenery, the lanterns that decorate the approach to the main shrine of Kifune Shrine, the Ryusenkaku, and the fresh greenery that covers the precincts emerge at night, creating a magical atmosphere. How about refreshing your mind and body at Kifune Shrine, a “power spot filled with vitality” surrounded by pure water and forests?
