Byodoin Temple(平等院)

Byodoin Temple is a Buddhist temple in the city of Uji in Kyoto Prefecture, built in 1052. Amida-do Hall (Phoenix Hall, National Treasure), famous for the design on the 10-yen coin, was built in 1053. It has been jointly managed by the Jōdo-shū and Tendai-shū sects since the 17th century. The temple treasures and cultural assets centering on numerous buildings that have been preserved since the 11th century, which is the latter half of the Heian period, convey the thoughts and culture of the past. It is one of the constituent properties of the UNESCO World Heritage "Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto" registered in 1994.

Fushimi Inari Taisha (伏見稲荷大社)

Fushimi Inari-taisha is the head shrine of the kami Inari, located in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto. It is said to have been built in 708-715. Inari was originally and remains primarily the kami of rice and agriculture. Each of Fushimi Inari-taisha's roughly 10,000 torii was donated, and approximately 800 of these are set up in rows that give the impression of entering a tunnel.

Nijō-jō (二条城)

Nijō-jo is a flatland castle in Kyoto, built in 1603 by Tokugawa shogunate. The castle consists of two concentric rings (Kuruwa) of fortifications, the Ninomaru Palace, the ruins of the Honmaru Palace, various support buildings and several gardens. It is one of the seventeen Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto which have been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
