Shimogamo Shrine

Get the Keihan line train to Demachiyanagi station where the Takano and Kamo river meet and visit two places that I love here.

The Kamogawa river starts here the main river that flows through Kyoto. Look at the map of Kyoto and you will see the Y shape where the two rivers become one. This is known as Kamogawa delta . This is a popular place for people to relax and contemplate. Crossing the river is fun with giant stepping stones some in the shape of turtles.

After,visit the Shimogamo Shrine . Walk the forest path to one of the oldest shrines in Japan and its sister shrine Kamigamo dating back 1200 years.
