"Older than Kyoto"

Pre-dating Kyoto itself, Kamigamo Shrine is dedicated to the god of thunder and has one of the few real expanses of lawn in the city. Located in an historical area of Shinto priests' houses, linked by a narrow stream, the shrine and its environs make for a very pleasant and relaxing stroll. One of the houses, Nishimura House is open to the public. Kamigamo, along with its sister shrine, Shimogamo Jinja, also hosts the annual "Aoi Matsuri" procession on 15 May. Additionally, 5 May sees an historic horse race. No fees to enter the shrine.
