Iwashimizu Hachimangu in Kyoto

 The main shrine and some other constuructions of Iwashimizu Hachimangu have been designated as the national treasure of Japan this year.  The first main shrine was built in 860,but afterwards it was burnt down many times and the present main shrine was built in the Tokugawa shogunate period.

 Iwashimizu Hachimangu is located between Kyoto and Osaka,so access is very easy from the both cities.  Iwashimizu Hachimangu is not popural for foreign tourists yet,but it is worth to visit.
