Koryu Temple is a Shingon sect temple located in Uzumasa, Ukyo-ku, Kyoto-city. There are aliases such as Hachioka Temple, Hatanokimi Temple, Uzumasa Temple, etc., and also called Uzumasakoryu Temple.
The official name of the Kaikonoyashiro Shrine is Konoshima-ni-Masu-Amateru-Mitama Shrine. It is also known as Kijima Shrine. The shrine has long been worshipped as a god of praying for rain, and is known for the unusual three-pillar torii gate on the shrine grounds.
From my house, I took the Kyoto municipal subway to Uzumasa Tenjingawa station, then I changed trains to Arashiyama railroad(common name:Randen) and arrived at Arashiyama station. It took long time. Arashiyama is very famous among foreigner tourist, and many of them are European people and Chinese people.
