Shinen( God’s garden) Japanese garden
I went to the Shinen Japanese garden of Heian Jingu Shrine in Kyoto, Japan.
The Heian Jingu Shrine Shinen Japanese garden is a modern Japanese garden.
It’s the pond style garden located at Heian Jingu Shrine in Kyoto.
It consists of the South, West, Middle, and East Gardens, which are arranged on three sides around the back of Daigoku-den Hall of Heian Jingu Shrine.
The garden covers an area of 33,000 square meters, was created by Jihei Ogawa the famous garden designer and was designated as a national place of scenic beauty in 1975.
Heian Jingu shrine
Heian Jingu Shrine was built in
in 1895 as part of the National Industrial Exhibition.
It’s held in Kyoto to commemorate the 1,100th anniversary of the relocation of the capital to Heian-kyo 794.
And Heian Jingu shrine was planned as a partial restoration of the Dairi(inner palace) of the Heian-kyo capital.
The shrine pavilions were modeled after the Chodoin, the main building of the Heian-kyo Imperial Palace.
And these were restored to five-eighths the size of the actual building, which was completed in 1895.
The shrine garden is especially tranquil in the quiet Kyoto, making us forget that it’s in the 1.5 million population city.
A stream flows into the pond in the garden, and the sound of the stream is soothing to the ears.
If you visit Heian Jingu Shrine, you should definitely enter Shinen Japanese garden.
You will be relaxed in the quiet garden.
Admission is 600 yen.( 6 dollars)
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
