Heian Shrine Garden

Holy Shrine Garden

On a cruise to Kyoto we visited the Heian Shrine and the gardens. You have to pay for a decent garden to enter behind the main hall. The Heian Shrine's Shin'en Garden, which consists of four different parts, is particularly beautiful and famous for its cherry blossoms in spring and iris in summer. The garden, created on the occasion of the eleven hundredth anniversary of the foundation of Kyoto, is a replica of a Heian shrine garden.

Travelling to Kyoto: Shrine Heian

Hean Shrine ( (????, Heian Jing?) has a relatively brief story that goes back a little over a hundred years to 1895. This sanctuary was erected on the 11th birthday of the founding of the capital in Kyoto and is devoted to the ghosts of the first and last kings of the town, Emperor Kammu (737-806) and Emperor Komei (1831-1867).

Heiran is the former name of Kyoto. An enormous door mark the entrance to the shrine, around which there are several museum. There is a large shrine with an open courtyard in the centre. Part of the shrine's central building is a copy of the Heian-era imperial palace, which was constructed on a slightly smaller-scale.

There is an appealing, landscaped garden with a large number of flora, lakes and old houses behind the principal canals. Its most conspicuous characteristic is the many grieving Cherries that flower a few nights later than most other Cherries, making it one of the best late flowering places in Kyoto, usually in mid-April.

The courtyard of the Shrine is sometimes used for other occasions. The Shrine is the site of the Jidai Festivals every year on October 22, the year of the founding of Kyoto. This year' s major celebration is a procession of costumed men from various eras of Japan' s past, from the Imperial Palace of Kyoto to the Heian Shrine.

You can reach Heian Shrine by Kyoto City Coach No. 5 or 100 from Kyoto Station in about half an hours (230 yen). You can also take the underground via Karasuma Oike Station to Higashiyama Station (20 min, 260 yen), from where you can reach the shrine on foot in tenmin.

Heian Shrine (????, Heian-jing?) is a Shinto shrine in Saky?-ku, Kyoto, Japan. This Shrine is classified by the Association of Shinto Schools as Beppy? Jinja (????). It' an important Japanese heritage. 1895 a part replica of the Heian Palace of Heian-ky? (former name of Kyoto) was scheduled for the 1100. year.

This year' s industry show (an exhibit on the evolution of Japan and alien cultures) took place in Kyoto, where the reproduction was to be the principal muse. But the Okazaki house was constructed on a 5:8 drawing of the real thing, because it hadn't bought enough space at the Heian Palace.

Ch?ta It? was constructed according to plans by It? At the end of the exposition the house was kept as a shrine in remembrance of the Emperor Kanmu, who was the Emperor when Heian-ky? became the city. 1940 Kaiser K?mei was added to the dedications register. The city was in shock and depression after the move to Tokyo.

Heian Shrine was a symbolic building of the town. Resurrection was the new Kyoto in terms of training, cultural, industrial and everyday activities, where at the same token the "good old" Kyoto was upheld. This architectural concept was a replica of Ch?d?in (imperial castle in the earlier epochs) on a 5/8 length model.

It is a major building that reflects the Kyoto imperial residence and[ 2] the 11th to 12th centuries styles (late Heian period). One of the biggest in Japan is the sanctuary's Tories. Approximately half of the country is devoted to the garden in japanesque design (approx. 33060 m2). The famous horticulturist Ogawa Jihei VII, also known as Ueji, designed the garden over a 20 year span.

In Japan otherwise uncommon types like Acheilognathus ayanostigma, the Gelbe Teichschildkröte and the Japanische Teichschildkröte are living around the wells. jing? will be organising the Jidai Matsuri[1], one of the most important Kyoto festivities, on 22 October. This celebration begins in the old emperor's residence and involves the wearing of the emperor Kanmu and K?mei to Heian-jing?.

It is also used for festive occasions such as Japan's wedding and music. It' s not often that a contemporary performance takes place in a historical place like the Shrine, but the fusion of old and new cultures is a fashion. The Okazaki Park is located next to the Shrine, where you can find out about the local people.

This sanctuary is encircled by the Kyoto Public Library, the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art, the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, Kyoto Kaikan and the Kyoto Zoo.
