Capital Cities, Heian Jingu Shrine, Japan, Kyoto City, Anniversary
Kyoto, Japan - October 17, 2011: The very first look of the shrine made visitors stopped and admired its beauty afar from the entrance gate. The Heian Shrine, Kyoto, Japan, was built in 1895 as of the 1,100th anniversary of the capital's foundation of Kyoto, and also was for a dedication to the spirits of the first and the last emperors reigning the city -- Emperor Kammu (737-806) and Emperor Komei (1831-1867). The shrine is quite spacious, of which the giant torii gate marks the approach.
