Shimogamo Shrine

Shimogamo Shrine is a Shinto sanctuary in the Shimogamo district, and it is one of the oldest Shinto Shrines in Japan. Its name refers to the shrine’s nearby woods, which are vestiges of the primeval forest of Tadasu no Mori. The shrine is dedicated to Tamayori-hime, who was the wife of Honoikazuchi, the god of fire and thunder.
