The leaves are colorful at Kamigamo Shrine

It is nice to walk around Kyoto because the colors of the leaves are beautiful in autumn.

I went to Kamigamo Shrine, which is registered as World Heritage by UNESCO.
This shrine started in 678 A.D., and is said it is ranked as the second of all shrines, next to Ise Grand Shrine in Mie Prefecture.

There are always a lot of worshipers and visitors,

and it is an extremely popular place for wedding. One of the priests said there were nine weddings on this day.
