About this sight

Founded in 678 and Kyoto's oldest shrine, Kamigamo Jinja Shrine hosts one of Japan's major imperial festivals, the Kamo-sai / Aoi Matsuri (Hollyhock Festival) held in May. It was designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1994. Water from Kamo River adjacent to the shrine also holds great religious significance.
