Kamigamo Shrine is one of Kyoto’s oldest shrines, and its rich history and beautiful architecture has also been recorded as Unesco’s World Heritage site. This year is a big year for Kamigamo shrine, as the gods return to the shrine, a ritual known as seikangu, which means ‘transfer of shrines’. This ritual is known to be held only once every 21 years, and the process will be taped live and broadcasted on the internet!
