:iconthanks4fav:  on  Devil Casting Stepping Stones. The two large rectangular stepping stones, like those at the Heian Shrine in Kyoto, are called devil-casting stones. If you take this zig-zag path across the pond, a pursuing devil may fall into the water and drown. The round stepping stone is an old millstone.

:icondsfav1plz::icondsfav2plz::icondsfav3plz: on Heian Shinto Shrine. The Heian Jingū was built in 1895 for the 1,100th anniversary of the establishment of Heiankyō (the old name of Kyoto). The shrine is dedicated to Emperor Kanmu and Emperor Kōmei. The former moved the capital to Heiankyō, and the latter was the last before Emperor Meiji, who moved the capital to Tokyo.

:iconthankyouspray1::iconthankyouspray2::iconthankyouspray3::iconthankyouspray4: on Red Pagoda at the Heian Jingu.In 1895, a partial reproduction of the Heian Palace from Heian-kyō (the former name of Kyoto) was planned for construction for the 1100th anniversary of the establishment of Heian-kyō. The Industrial exposition fair (an exhibition of development of Japanese and foreign cultures) was held in Kyoto that year, where the replica was to be the main monument. After the Exhibition ended, the building was kept as a shrine in memory of the 50th Emperor, Emperor Kanmu, who was the Emperor when Heian-kyō became the capital. Kyoto was shocked and depressed after the capital was moved to Tokyo. Later, the citizens came together to build a new city after World War II. The construction of Heian Shrine was a symbol of revival for the city. Three years later, the burned buildings were reconstructed with money collected from donations.
