Photographer's Note

1895 marked 1100th year of Kyoto's establishment as the capital of Kyoto. To commemorate this, the government founded the Heian-jingu shrine. It was dedicated to the 1st and last emperors who ruled in Kyoto.
The halls represent replicas of the main Imperial Palace built in the 8th century.

A little note on the colour red:
In Japanese tradition, it is believed that the colour red wards off evil spirits and demons. The colour is predominant in a lot of Shinto shrines.
