|Title||[World Heritage] Kamomioya-jinja|
|Address||59 Izumigawa-cho, Shimogamo, sakyo-ku, Kyoto-city, 606-0807 Japan|
Commonly known as the Shimogamo Shrine.
Located on the southern banks of the Kamo river, Kamomioya-jinja both reflects and inspires Kyoto City. Even its common name is a product of the city. “Shimo-,” meaning lower, and “-gamo,” after the city’s central river, yields the familiar Shimogamo. The creator and guardian of the city, Kamotaketsunomi-no-mikoto, is enshrined in the main sanctuary of the shrine, along his daughter Tamayorihime-no-mikoto, a mythical figure with her own repute. Together these deities welcome and protect all who visit the shrine, from Kyoto and beyond.
