    2泊3日の京都旅行で、京都が良く分からない状況での1泊目でした。 京都駅からのタクシー運転手さんから教えていただいた、2本だけの「早咲きの桜」を見るため、夕方には鴨川散策しました。 ホテルからは丁度いい距離です。桜の時期には1週間ほど早かったので、ホテル傍の川沿いの桜はまだ蕾でしたが、満開の頃には部屋の広縁から見ることができるそうです。ただ街中の旅館ですので、窓からの景観は期待されないほうがよいで...

    写真通りのキレイさで、テレビや冷蔵庫など全て襖で隠せるようになっており、上品で贅沢な時間を過ごせました。 朝ごはんもかなり立派で美味しかったです! 欠点は、エレベーターがガタガタと音がなって心配になるのと、壁が薄くて廊下の声や足音が筒抜けでした。あと、駐車場がパーキングしかない為、2600円かかりました。 それ以外は、文句なし‼︎ また利用しようと思っています。

    新年初旅行で、彼女と利用させてもらいました。 二人だけでしたが、10畳もの広い部屋で、ゆったりのんびり過ごしました。 朝・夕ともにボリュームたっぷりの食事で大満足です。 また、立地条件もよく京都周辺を初詣・買い物と堪能することができました。 従業員の方も、親切丁寧な対応をしてくださり、利用してよかったと思いました。

Yasaka Shrine
Yasaka Shrine Taitai Kagura Dance at Yasaka Shrine has been performed since the Edo period, its origin was from Izumi style Kagura that had come from Kanda Myojin in Edo (Tokyo). Every year, there are 2 festivals: Spring festival (the last Sunday of February) and Autumn festival (November 23rd) are held in the hall. Those days the Kagura was used to be dedicated to pray for bountiful harvest and warding off evil with the God's spirit. In 1968, the shrine was designated as the important intangible cultural properties by Utsunomiya City.
Chion-in originated in Yoshinaga's thatched hut in Kyoto Higashiyama, where the monk Honen who began Jodo-shu religion and preached the Buddhism for more than 30 years.

23 years after his death, in 1234 his pupil Seikan Bougenchi built temple dedicated to the monk Honen. Later the emperor Shijo honored him a title Chion-in. This is the origin of the mausoleum for Honen and Buddhism school.

Among the existing wooden gate architectures, Chion-in has the three biggest gates, scripture house, goeidou, O-joho, Sho-joho, imperial envoy gate, great bell tower, reunion hall, large and small Buddhist priests' living quarters, which are the Important Cultural Properties of Japan.
