Ota-jinja Shrine

Ota-jinja Shrine is an auxiliary shrine of Kamigamo Shrine, dedicated to Ame-no-Uzume.

This temple is famous for its irises that bloom on the floating island that used to be a part of Ota marsh. It is designated as an Important Natural Monument. The flowers bloom in the end of May and many people come to see them. The pond was mentioned in the Heian Period’s (794-1185) "Waka Poetry" and its beauty remains unchanged ever since.

Access

Bus: Take the Kyoto City Bus and get off at Kamigamo-jinja-mae Bus Stop. The shrine is then ten minutes on foot from there.
