Introduction Heian Jingu is known as one of the most popular sightseeing places in Kyoto, which is also famous as one of the most popular wedding shrines. In front of this shrine there is a 24-meter-high torii (a gateway at the entrance to a Shinto shrine), and the precinct is vast, 33,000 square meters of land. In this precinct you can find great traditional buildings painted vivid red. This shrine was established in 1895 and is about 120 years old. You can feel the old style of Heian Period, and you will be moved.

Heian Jingu is very rich in nature, especially the huge weeping cherry tree which fascinates visitors every spring.

We are sure that you will never forget walking the passageway to the solemn main building (the place of your wedding ceremony), looking at the beautiful grounds surrounded by stunning nature, and the scene of you and your loved one swearing eternal love to each other will be the most unforgettable time of your life.
