[Jonangu Shrine] in Fushimi, which is deeply worshiped as a big shrine of hoyoke

When the capital was moved to Heian in 794 (Enryaku 13), it was built in the south of the capital as a guardian deity of the country, and is deeply worshiped as a god of protection. Today, as a guardian deity of daily life, it is prayed for traffic safety, family harmony, warding off evil, and safety.

The main shrine was built in the architectural style of the late Heian period. The shrine garden "Rakusui-en" is planted with more than 80 species of plants and trees depicted in the Tale of Genji, and is also called "Genji Monogatari Hana-no-niwa. The annual "Kyokusui-no-En (party at a watercourse)," held on April 29, recreates the elegant poetry of the Heian period poets. The garden is also known for its weeping plum blossoms, camellias, and autumn leaves, and visitors can enjoy beautiful seasonal scenery.
