Introduction

From early March, lots of events, like Higashiyama Hanatoro and Aoi Matsuri festival, were canceled due to COVID-19.

The state of emergency was lifted and tourists come back to Kyoto gradually but the fear of novel coronavirus are still alive.

Now we are in the season of so-called Ao Momiji (Green autumn leaves/green maple) and I’m sure some are dying to visit Kyoto.

So, I’ll show you places to visit keeping social distance.

Yasaka shrine 八坂神社

Goriyaku for epidemic 疫病退散のご利益

茅の輪守

Goriyaku is fortune Deities give to us. In the fear of the novel virus, Yakaska shrine is the best place to visit because Susanooh no Mikoto, the Deity of the shrine, is famous for keeping us away from epidemics. For example, Gion Matsuri festival, the most important Matsuri of Yasaka shrine, has been held to get rid of epidemic from Kyoto for over 1500 years.

Why does Susanooh save us? The answer based on an old story. When he was on his odyssey, he was at a loss for a place to sleep. He saw Somin Shorai and asked for a bed. Somin welcomed him with pleasure though he was a poor guy. In the next morning, Susanooh told Somin Shorai that he would save him and his descendants in case they would suffer from epidemic.
