Heian-jingu Shrine is a Shinto shrine in Sakyo-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto. The old shrine ranking is offering from an official big shrine, festival held by Imperial ordinance company. The present is a separate table Shinto shrine of the Shinto shrine central government office.
The part reconstruction of the Emperor's palace at the time of the Heiankyo removal of the capital was planned as a come-on of inside the country encouragement of industry exhibition held (1895) in Kyoto in commemoration of peaceful removal of the capital 1100 on April 1 in 1895. It was planned at first so that the god of the south gate is really located in 1,000 Marutamachi where the Emperor's palace was, but fails in the site purchase. The ground-breaking ceremony was held (1893) on September 3 in 1893 and was restored to the original state on five-eighths natural scale in those days in Okazaki that was the suburbs. On March 15 ahead of an exhibition, it was done as the Shinto shrine which worshiped the 50th Emperor Kanmu who was the peaceful Emperor who transferred the capital.
The 121st Emperor Komei who was the last Emperor who spent it in Heiankyo in (1940) in 1940 equal to 2,600 years in the Imperial reign was added to an enshrined deity. In Heian-jingu Shrine, the lucky charm of Chinese Gods of four seasons following Kyoto is conferred.
A fire (Heian-jingu Shrine arson case) occurred (1976) on January 6 1976, and nine including a main shrine, the inner front shrine were burnt down and were destroyed by fire. But Daigokuden which is an outside front shrine avoids spread of a fire.
Because the foundation was relatively new, I was not able to anticipate the subsidy from the country for the rebuilding because these buildings did not catch the cultural assets designation in those days. However, the main shrine and the inner front shrine were rebuilt three years later by the fund-raising from the whole country.
This fire became clear with a crime of Japanese New Leftist Saburo Kato later. Heian-jingu Shrine enshrining centennial was held (1994) on March 15 in 1994.
The main shrine performed reduction (by the length ratio approximately five-eighths) of government house (the House of eight ministries) which was an original agency of the Emperor's palace of Heiankyo and was restored to the original state. The gate of the front that cinnabar red to greatly shine red is characterized by imitates of the government house. The palatial residence of inside right and left is reproduction of the collection of morning temple.
The outside front shrine imitates Daigokuden ( and a tiger-shape guardian god of the west tower are attached to right and left) which is Tadashi of the government house. It is completed in (1895) in 1895, and the main shrine is destroyed by fire by the fire that a fire broke out (1976) on the early morning of January 1 in 1976. I rebuild it in the spring of 1980.
A tiger-shape guardian god of the west tower: I imitated a style of the Heiankyo government house with of the east. In the roof, five double cases mother appearance of a house, is taken a pavilion roof. The name of is associated with "this Kyoto having been considered to be the ground where is suitable for Chinese Gods of four seasons" (, tiger-shape guardian god of the west, god of the south, Xuanwu).
25 floor space tsubos (approximately 82.7 square meters, length of a crossbeam form a line approximately 9.85 meters of beam line 32.5 shaku I imitated a style of the Heiankyo government house with a western tiger-shape guardian god of the west tower. In the roof, five double cases mother appearance of a house, is taken a pavilion roof. It becomes basically that these architecture reproduced the House of the third eight ministries of (11-12 centuries) in the latter half of the Heian era (the Enkyu era four years (1072) rebuilding, Jisho era first year (1177) firing).
The figures such as Daigokuden of this time are drawn on "the annual function picture scroll" that let you make it. But and 12 Imperial Court temples originally exist between Daigokuden and , and the lofty building called and the home beautiful castle was attached to right and left of , but these are not restored in Heian-jingu Shrine. In addition, all the tiles of the main shrine of Heian-jingu Shrine become the green glaze tile, but are estimated when the green glaze tile was used for only an edge of the eaves and a ridge part according to the recent study in Daigokuden of the Heian era.
The design is Chuta Ito, Kiyoyuki Kinoko, Iwajiro Sasaki. In December, 2010, six including Daigokuden were appointed by the important cultural property of the country. In addition, Otorii of the approach to a shrine has high 24.4m and is enrolled in the registration tangible cultural property of the country.
There is the plottage approximately approximately 20,000 tsubos including "Heian-jingu Shrine garden attached to a Shinto shrine" that is the Japanese garden of approximately 10,000 tsubos. In the famous garden which Jihee Ogawa hangs the garden attached to a Shinto shrine more than 20 years for the seventh generation that is an excellent landscape gardener from Meiji to Showa and made, it is appointed in the natural beauty spot of the country.
I draw water from Lake Biwa running off water, and it is confirmed in Lake Biwa that which I was not able to see for fish of foreign origin survives. I steal grass Mino growing it on birds and shells such as kingfisher or Otaka whom there is few in a human dwelling in the garden attached to a Shinto shrine, and the Minami spotted turtles that it is very unusual have habitation in Japan.
