Hosting a Party at the HEIAN JINGU SHRINE Restaurant & Banquet Hall

The many impressive aspects of the Heian Jingu Shrine such as its vermilion-colored buildings and beautiful white sand emphasize the tradition and prestige at this shrine. The HEIAN JINGU SHRINE Restaurant & Banquet Hall is located within the shrine grounds and next to the "Shin-en Garden", which is a garden that has been designated by the Japanese Government as a Place of Scenic Beauty and is approximately 33,060 square meters in size. In contrast to the magnificent image of the vermilion shrine gate (Torii) and gorgeous shrine buildings, the view of the vast garden gives the venue a calm and quiet atmosphere. At this venue you can feel the seasons such as the weeping cherry trees in full bloom during the spring and autumn foliage in the fall while enjoying exquisite traditional Japanese cuisine that is prepared using in season and local ingredients from Kyoto. Reserve this luxurious space where guests can enjoy refined Kyoto cuisine, exceptional hospitality, and the charm of the different seasons while getting a feel for the tradition that continues to be passed down since the Heian period.
