About Kyoto Daijingu Shrine
There was a request that along with facilities be established nationwide that people could worship Ise Jingu for the far, the distribution of Ise Jingu Taima be conducted for people who couldn’t make visit to Ise Jingu which was frequently done from the end period of Edo era after welcoming the Meiji Restoration.
Kyoto Daijingu Shrine has its origin from Jingukyo Kyoto Church which was missionary institution of Ise Jingu at that time and was built as Jingukyo Saikai Kyoto regional headquarters.
When I visited there, there was no visitor in the precinct and its main shrine was in the state that even the towline could not be pulled as new coronavirus measure.
