Are you in Kyoto now? Then it is a good idea to visit Shimogamo Shrine in Kyoto at night.
Usually the shrine closes at around 17:00. But for the limited period of time, this shrine holds an illumination event.
This event will finish on Augst 31st. So there is only one week left! Even though it open from 18:00 – 21:30, depending on how busy it is, it might close earlier. It is a walking distance from Keihan line’s Demachi Yangai station.
It is basically free, but to see the artworks inside the gate of main building, the entrance fee, 500 yen, is required.
Or if you rather want to read the guidebook on your Kindle e-book reader or application, then get our Kyoto e-Guidebook on Amazon instead.
