This small shrine in a bamboo grove of Sagano area has a long history and is probably the nonomiya referred to in Genji-Monogatari (The Tale of Genji) written 1000 years ago by a court lady called Murasaki Shikibu. The shrine has a unique black torii gateway that is made of logs with bark.

Add: 1 Nonomiya-cho, Saga, Ukyo-ku, Kyoto City
