The Shimogamo shrine is one of the oldest in Kyoto, and goes back to the days even before the capital was transferred to Kyoto in 794.
After 794, the two shrines were deeply revered by the Imperial court, court nobles and samurai warriors, as the guardian deities of the Imperial capital. For about 400 years from 810, Imperial princesses served the Kamo shrines as Saio (Imperial shrine maidens).
The natural forest, “Tadasu-no-Mori (糺の森), within the precinct covers an area of 124.000m² or 1.3347e+6ft².
On May 15th every year, The Aoi festival, one of the three biggest festivals in Kyoto, is held and displays the gorgeous lifestyle of the Heian period (794-1192) with a procession along the streets of the ancient capital from the Imperial Palace to the Shimogamo Shrine and then on to the Kamigamo shrine. The shrine events of Yabusame (horseback archery) on May 3rd and the Mitarashi festival in late July, are also famous.
